Participants will be invited to attend three webinars on the topics of practitioner-led action research, multimodality and data. Each webinar will be led by a specialist in their field.

The webinars are designed to help you think about key issues in designing and carrying out your action research project. You will be encouraged to participate actively by engaging and contributing through virtual breakout rooms. There will be follow up activities to help prepare in particular for peer working group one (scheduled for November) and peer working group two (scheduled for March). Each webinar can be accessed after the event.
