In this unit, participants critically engage with a learning environment, with colleagues’ perspectives, and with the research literature, to formulate a question they want to explore. They collaborate with colleagues to design and undertake a research project that involves collecting and analysing data to generate evidence aimed at transforming their practice. In doing so, they will develop their skills in working collaboratively and work towards developing and sustaining a community of practice. They will follow an appropriate research approach and processes to complete this project. The intention is that participants will share their findings with a broader audience beyond their own organisation (e.g. School/organisation networks, professional networks or targeted conferences).
