In this unit students work collaboratively with other students and/or staff on projects where practice informs research. Through critical analysis of previous and concurrent units students will plan, conduct, and evaluate a form of teacher research. This research takes place in an educational context and findings will be reported back to participants or other professionals interested in the ways that practice informs research.


Upon successful completion of this unit students should be able to:

  1. gain an understanding of how practice can inform research;
  2. critically analyse personal research practices in relation to global educational contexts (i.e., context unit), and
  3. develop leadership and mentoring skills for the field of education around the co-construction of practice informing research and research informing practice.
