World Universities Network (WUN)
Research methods project aimed to equip academics and PhD students to improve the quality of their research, teaching and supervision.
University of Auckland is collaborating with other participating Universities on the following piece of research “Research Methodologies in Education (ReMiE) Project: Enhancing the research capacities of academics and PhD students in the field of education” being led by Dr Lisa Kim from University of York (UK).
The project has three aims:
• understand the common and unique challenges and “solutions” that WUN academics and students in the field of education experience in using/teaching/learning research methodologies;
• provide capacity enhancement opportunities for education academics and students that strengthen research methodology expertise, which in turn enhances the quality of research outputs, research supervision and research methodology teaching in each WUN university; and
• provide greater awareness of WUN’s education academics’ research expertise and skills, which in turn provides networking and collaboration opportunities to further strengthen WUN.
Associate Professors Mei Kuin Lai and Rebecca Jesson from Te Putahi | Woolf Fisher Research Centre (University of Auckland) have been involved in the series of research methodology virtual workshops held for academics in education throughout 2022, namely “Engaging in school partnership research”.
The work they presented on was based on the Learning Schools Model co-designed and co-tested in the Centre since the early 2000s.
