The benefits of action research in offender learning

My teaching and research focuses on offender learning and offenders in custody who have experienced marginalisation from educational activities in their lives.

Specifically, I am interested in finding inspirational teaching techniques and new ideas to inspire students and tutors, to include the student voice and to inspire staff and improve morale in their daily work.

My first action-research project included a case study titled OK Miss, I was good at fraud but now l am in prison. The research poster was in comic-book format as many of the literacy students relate well to this format.

It reminded me that harnessing students' creative talents, often previously overlooked, is a way forward and that it could be used in all curriculum areas.
