is a systematic way for teachers to discover what works best in their own classroom situation, thus allowing informed decisions about teaching (Mettetal, 2002)

is an activity that connects the ‘doing’ of teaching with the ‘questioning’ of research that can be united if teachers are to become contributors who shape educational policy and define effective classroom practice (Freeman, 1998)
