Bluewater Action Research Network

Our purpose is to create meaningful, relevant, authentic and sustainable professional development for practitioners that can be directly transferred to the classroom to creating similar learning opportunities for students. We use action-reflection and data-driven self-directed inquiry in a collaborative community.

The goals of this proposal align directly with 25 out of 31 of the K-12 School Effectiveness Framework indicators.  It also alligns with Bluewater District BIPSA priorities. 

Priority #1: To facilitate quality instruction and learning experiences for educators in which as-needed, individualized feedback and support is available through the development of mentor/mentee relationships, small cultures of inquiry and validation groups.

Priority #2: To co-create an equitable and inclusive environment with a common understanding of group values, goals and success criteria with the improvement of student wellbeing and achievement at the core, in which educator learning is deepened through authentic, relevant and meaningful self-directed inquiry, and with measurable improvement in student wellbeing and achievement as an outcome. 

Priority #3:  To promote and facilitate dialogue across subjects, divisions, levels of the Board and within the community through diverse sustainable growth over time and through the public sharing of our work.
