Abstract

This work presents the preliminary findings of the third phase of a small scale research study conducted by the authors with a small number of serving secondary school teachers of design and technology based in the North West of England. The work originates from a study designed to improve the ability of Flexible PGCE design and technology trainee teachers to gain a ‘Level 7’ in the submission of their research assignments utilising a classroom evidence based approach (Bell et al. 2011). It was during this study that unanticipated findings emerged, which set a new course of enquiry; to explore the potential to support teachers in the generation of evidence based classroom practitioner research, of which the preliminary ‘pilot’ work is reported here.
