Classroom-based Exploratory Research

Do you need support with a specific group of learners or in a particular area of teaching or training? Are you taking a teaching course and need a sounding board? Or do you want to explore something new in your teaching practice? Whether you are a newly qualified or highly experienced teacher, eltonix supports you through classroom-based exploratory research. We work with individuals and groups of teachers.

  • The whole journey usually takes 4 weeks
  • It includes online meetings, ongoing mentoring, a tailor-made action plan and a digital portfolio
  • The first meeting is free. If you like us, the whole journey costs 540 euros (payable in Euros, GBP, US dollars)
  • Lesson observations (live or recorded) with spoken and written feedback can be organised at a cost of 80 euros per observation provided you have consent from your school, your students or the parents/guardians of your students. You can add as many observations as you like.
  • You will need an active class with one or more students (face-to-face or online)

The Steps

Step 1

Your students and your needs

  • Complete the application form so we can get to know you and your context better.
  • We organise an initial online meeting to find out more about you, your students and your needs. This is a free consultation.
  • Once you’ve loved our ideas and decided to continue the eltonix journey, we send you an invoice.

Step 2

Classroom-based exploratory research

  • We explore your classroom context to identify what you want to explore and create some exploratory questions. At this point, we give you tools to collect your students' opinions and thoughts.

    Based on this information, we then write a comprehensive and personalised action plan to tackle your immediate needs in the classroom.
  • We meet again to discuss your action plan in detail and answer any questions you have.
  • You carry out your classroom-based exploratory research. As you do this, we are available to mentor you over your preferred social media app. If you want us to observe your lessons and get feedback, this is where the observation happens.

Step 3

Reflection

  • We meet a final time to guide you through your reflection on your classroom practice, answer any questions and celebrate all the great things that happened in your lessons!
  • You reflect on the whole process for your digital portfolio. How you do this is up to you but will be guided by your mentor. You may choose to write a reflective piece, or voice/video record your thoughts.
  • We document your journey in a digital portfolio that is yours to keep and share.
