ABSTRACT
This article discusses teacher involvement in education research. A research project performed by researchers at Loughborough University of Technology about alternative ways to teach physical education games incorporated teacher self-evaluation and the monitoring of the classroom process. The game-centered games forced teachers to learn a different way of presenting games and allowed them to explore the games in their classroom settings without the threat of failure because the games had come from the university.
