- Publisher's Summary
- How can teachers deepen their understanding of their work? How can researchers make sure their work is grounded in and responsive to community needs? In this assemblage of rich examples of partnership research in early years education, Duncan and Conner set out how early childhood teachers and researchers can work in partnerships that benefit them both. Drawing on examples of successful partnerships from Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, they tell the stories of the successes, struggles, insights, and opportunities that come from working in such partnerships. Each chapter describes its own political, social, cultural and educational contexts, identifying the importance of complementary and reciprocal expertise required to solve educational puzzles. Through skillful analysis, this volume demonstrates how collaborative research on early childhood education results in gains for educators, researchers, and children alike.
