Ultimate purpose of action research is to improve practice NOT to know something. Sustainability.

Puzzle - around practice, research question, my/our

Process - act/reflect/observe, data collection/evidence eg observation/video/survey, personal journal/blog - date on ME

Conclusions - results, coutcomes, resolution, answer to puzzle

Presentation - public, sharing

Collaboration needed at some stage eg observations.

Evidence based practice.
