Action Research and Lesson Study for ISEND

In 2022, the National Association for Special Educational Needs (nasen) launched the new ‘Universal SEND Services’ programme. Funded by the Department for Education and running from now until 2025, this important work includes various elements, including a school and further education (FE) college Action Research and Lesson Study project.

Led by the Inclusion and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Research Cluster, this Action Research and Lesson Study project aims to support schools and FE staff to develop their own bespoke small-scale research projects that focus on inclusion and removing barriers to achievement for children and young people with SEND.

Divided into two strands, between 2022-2025, this three-year project will support the development of 50 new Lesson Study projects and 75 new Action Research projects. 

If you have any questions about the project, please feel free to email the Project Lead Dr Geraldene Codina.
