Bristol Conversations in Education - Relational expertise: what is it and what does it offer?
Professor Emerita Anne Edwards - University of Oxford
Room 1.20, GSoE
This event is part of the Graduate School of Education's 'Bristol Conversations in Education' seminar series.
Collaborating within and across practices is expected of professionals who are tackling complex problems. In this seminar Anne will explain the concept of relational expertise, how it arose in her work on inter-professional collaborations. She will also point to examples of how it has been used as an analytic resource in research studies in a range of settings including: early education in Australia; rural schooling in Rajasthan; citizen science in the UK; teacher education partnerships in the UK; researching digital innovations in Denmark; and knowledge exchange in UK higher education. These and other examples are to be found in her recent book: Working relationally in and across practices – a cultural-historical approach to collaboration with Cambridge University Press.
