Description: Wawasan Open University (WOU) has recognized the current needs of teachers to conduct action research for their continuous self-improvement and professional self-development. The intention is to empower teachers as reflective practitioners to undertake classroom based research to look into their practice with a view towards improving the quality of the teaching learning processes at the practitioner’s level. The resultant action research achievements will be the best practices that a network of peers, including teacher coaches, senior teachers, and principals can disseminate and share to provide greater support to help each other achieve their full potential. This Action Research massive open online course (MOOC) is created by WOU, with a grant awarded by the Commonwealth of Learning (COL), Canada. The intention is unlimited online participation and open access via the web. WOU also understands the need to equip the teachers with the skills to inquire into a particular issue of current concern, with the aim of implementing a change in a specific situation, thus enabling them to reflect on their own classroom practice and improve it.
