The research theme around networks and partnership explores the importance of agency, relational agency and the importance of creating spaces between diverse individuals and groups. The object of activity includes how partnerships with others (e.g. children and young people, professional groups, practitioners, staff and students, community members) involves sharing diverse ideas and understandings, intergenerational learning experiences and creates new ways of working. We are interested in how to facilitate innovation through creating networking possibilities across the education sector groups (EC, primary, secondary and tertiary) and beyond.
