Sharing Your Research

Croí logo 1

There are a number of ways in which Council and other stakeholders, support teachers in sharing their research with each other. Click on the headings below for more information.


ResearchMeets are based on the TeachMeet format, an organised (but informal) meeting where participants are offered a variety of nano - (two-minute) or macro - (seven-minute) presentations on any aspect of education. In a ResearchMeet, teachers who are engaged in research present on their ongoing and/or completed research. These are now a feature of the Council's annual calendar of research events.

T-REX Logo

T-REX is an online network for teachers and other educational researchers. It will support schools and Higher Education Institutions in accessing and sharing the latest insights from cutting-edge research at times and in places that suit them. Whether you are looking for a summary of the latest research on a topic of interest to your classroom, or you want to discuss that research with fellow teachers and researchers, or all of the above, T-REX will offer you a free platform to do this! It will support conversations, collaborations and stronger connections between research, policy, practice, and between schools and HEIs. The next phase of the platform’s development is being funded jointly by the Research Alive! group (namely, the Teaching Council, the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) and the Centre for Effective Services) and the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, over a two year period. Find out more about T-REX here and click here to access the platform.


The Network for Educational Action Research in Ireland (NEARI) is a network for action researchers for those who are new to action research, those who are working on action research projects and those who are life-long action researchers. It is a cross-sectoral group with participants from all levels of the education system. Further details are available here.


The Collaborative Action Research Network (CARN) is an international network with members from educational, health, social care, commercial and public services settings. It aims to encourage and support action research projects (personal, local, national and international), accessible accounts of action research projects, and contributions to the theory and methodology of action research. Access to the website is available here.

A Practical Toolkit for Sharing Research Data

By sharing research data, teachers and other researchers maximise the impact of their work, and benefit the education system more broadly. Sharing your data allows other researchers to use your material in ways you may not have thought of, or may not have been able to do within your research project. It allows other researchers to replicate your findings, to verify your results, test your instruments and compare with other studies. It also allows them to use your work to expand knowledge in important areas. This booklet, developed by the Childhood Development Initiative, is a practical toolkit which will be a support to teachers and other researchers in sharing their data.
