M-PBEA Journal

2018 Journal

The theme for the 2018 Journal is Action Research: Innovation Practices in the Business Education Classroom

Action research is a broad research technique used to evaluate an existing practice to improve a process. It is often used in education to improve the learning process. Teachers collect data on an activity they use in their class and then analyze the findings in an effort to revise the activity to better align with the learning objectives. Action research is ideal for teachers to better inform their own practice and to share their findings with other educators.
