I am pleased to inform you that we are now ready to receive applications for the next round of IBSC Action Research in Boys' Schools.We hope that you will take a few moments to review this email, and that you will bring it the attention of teachers who might be a great fit for the topic and for the program.
For the 2014-15 round of research, the topic is Boys as Makers. Please consult the IBSC Action Research 2014-15 Information Sheet for full details about the topic.
Selected applicants will begin on-line preparation and orientation in February, and will attend a two-day training workshop beginning June 27, 2014, prior to the IBSC annual conference in Nashville, TN, USA. Additional expectations and financial requirements are spelled out in the Information Sheet, which should be carefully reviewed.
Since its beginning eight years ago, the IBSC Action Research program has grown from strength to strength, and is a recognized leader in action research on boys’ education on a global scale. Many participants – both young and veteran teachers – have told us that the experience has been transformational for their professional growth and for their schools. Many have gone on to present at other conferences, to publish their findings in scholarly and professional journals, and to pursue more post-graduate work. The reports and posters of recent teams are available on the 2012–13 Action Research webpage.
Applicants are requested to complete and submit the Application Form by December 1, 2013. A Statement of Support from the applicant’s Head or designate is required to complete the application.Participants will be selected by December 15, 2013.
I would be happy to answer any questions that you or any prospective applicant might have about this exciting topic for IBSC Action Research.
