Welcome to the website and blog of the Collaborative Learning Initiative Ireland North West. We are a group of professional development advisors from the Professional Development Service for Teachers, and teachers working in schools across the West and North West of Ireland. The Collaborative Learning Initiative (CLI) is an action research process involving teachers, working together, and applying the principles of action research to our professional practice. Please take a look at our site, and the work we are engaged in. If you have suggestions about what we are doing, or you just want to make contact and link up, please use the ‘Comment’ facility on the blog. We’d especially like to hear from other teachers engaged in action research elsewhere in Ireland and beyond!
