Master teachers’ research obligations

Q: I have started my three-year term as a master teacher this year – what research obligations do I have?

A: Action research is used by teachers to solve classroom problems and improve professional practice.

Master teachers are expected to undertake action research in their roles, with the focus on helping classroom teachers to improve their students’ literacy and numeracy.

They can choose to enrol in a formal course run by the University of Southern Queensland, but this is not mandatory.
