Dr. Subhash Chandra sir enlightened the student with his thoughts on Action Research: Concept and its Implications. Action research is a very important concept in the B.Ed course. Sir gave us a general idea about action research and its importance for the teachers. Action research is also known as practitioner research, the concept was given by Kurt Lewin’s Lea in the 1930s. He worked on the idea of action research which is done during the action to find challenges and address these challenges.

Sir highlighted how proper parenting, support, and guidance affect the learning of a child, a teacher needs to identify the reason. He also introduced the fact that how classroom teaching can be more effective through action research. It provides experiences to the teachers and also helps the students to prepare and acquire real-world skills.

Dr. Subhash Chandra sir introduced us to the process of action research and told us that research questions are sufficient for action research but more than that the most important thing is to define the context of action research. Identify the challenges and limitations, our role in the problem, and make a plan of action by using strategies. Sir also told us about tools that can be used in action research – observation, and feedback from the students.

With this, sir also discussed that action research should not be biased. The implementation and the evaluation of the tool should be correct. Sir also told us that we can share our action research with our colleagues in the research paper if our research is field base.



It was a very informative session. As it makes learning an experience that moves beyond the classroom and strives to bring a more involved way of learning. It was a good learning opportunity for everybody.
