Today I visited Edinburgh, which looked beautifully twinkley and all decked out for Christmas. I came to offer two sessions – a lecture on authentic assessment and a seminar on action research. It’s been a great day with lots of interaction on exemplars, technology, reflection, and much more. I go away with lots of ideas and thoughts and inspiration (which isn’t easy by week 9 of term, so thanks team Napier!).
Here are the resources, as promised. Please use and re purpose as helpful.
Additionally please see below for direct links to the HEA/AdvanceHE Guides to action research.

Finally – I was asked about publishing action research. I’d recommend having look at the journal called Educational Action Research for inspiration and also explore CARN (not exclusively HE or even education, but a very broad church of inspirational research which includes HE).
