A Proposed Model of Teacher Researcher’s Network to Create Instructional Innovation for Raising Students’ Learning Achievement in Science and Mathematics

Abstract

The main objective of this article is to develop a model of teacher researcher’s network to create instructional innovation for raising students’ learning achievement in science and mathematics at the secondary education level. The research followed the research and development methodology as the followings; phase 1: preparing the collaborative strategies for supporting the teacher researcher’s network, phase 2: developing the teacher researcher’s network, phase 3: evaluating the quality of the teacher researcher’s network and phase 4: disseminating and extending the teacher researcher’s network participation. The target groups were classified into 3 groups as follows: 1) The 110 teachers from the learning substance of mathematics, science, physics, chemistry and biology in secondary education schools. and 2) 5 educational supervisors and 3) 6 lecturers as researcher team from education faculty, 3 lecturers from science faculty. This research is currently in phase 2. The results revealed that, in area-based context, there were five major science and mathematics-related projects which represented the importance and value of the learning activity. The model of teacher researcher’s network was developed and consisted of 5 important processes as follows: 1) the paradigm shift of teacher’s perceptions toward the classroom action research. 2) the situation analysis to delegate responsibility to work together as a learning community network, 3) both the innovation of teaching and the classroom action research to raise students learning achievement was considered as a collaborative and mutual responsibility of teachers 4) the monitoring, evaluating and reviewing and 5) sharing and reviewing the work to develop.
