Description This unit develops students' capacity to engage with the tenets of research as they investigate and reflect on their teaching practice, pedagogy and professional identity as a practitioner. Students are introduced to research through action research. The students use the Principles and Practices sections from the Early Years Learning Framework to reflect on their pedagogy, which requires them to consider the strength of their practice and the subsequent areas for improvement to develop their teaching practice. Through this process, students develop an understanding of critical reflective practice and improvement cycles. The action research model requires students to explore research processes of data collection, analysis techniques, literature review and using this information to develop a new cycle of investigation.
