EIS Action Research Grants

Every year, EIS members conduct Action Research on behalf of the Institute on a wide range of topics. These reports are published on the EIS website for members to access.

The Action Research reports can be used to shape your own learning and professional practice, to support practical changes in your own setting, or as a starting point for further practitioner enquiry within your community.

Some EIS Researchers recently presented at the EIS Professional Learning Conference, and you can access their presentations along with their reports for further information.

Applications are now open for the EIS Action Research Grants 2021-22 Programme, please see the EIS website for full details.
