Through its CROÍ Research Series, the Teaching Council aims to promote a research culture in schools. CROÍ stands for Collaboration and Research for Ongoing Innovation and is also the Irish word for heart, reflecting the fact that research is at the heart of teaching and learning.
The Council promotes a research culture in a number of ways including:
- issuing and circulating regular research e-zines, including research summaries written by teachers for teachers
- hosting research webinars on themes relevant to teachers' practice,
- providing free access to all registered teachers to an online research library.
We have grouped some of these resources thematically to assist teachers in using them in school. You may wish to choose a particular theme and explore the resources below with colleagues as part of a staff meeting. Over time, we will expand this section of our website, so that it becomes a comprehensive and valuable resource to help teachers in using research in their classrooms.
*The Teaching Council provides registered teachers with free access to an online library in order to enhance their access to educational research, thereby supporting their professional learning. The Teaching Council does not accept responsibility for the accuracy or integrity of journals, articles, ebooks, citations and related webpages or material accessed via these resources. The inclusion of these resources does not imply Teaching Council endorsement of any products, services, views or information described or offered in any such articles, ebooks, citations and related webpages etc.
