COLLABORATORY FOR POLICY AND LEADERSHIP
What is a collaboratory?
We chose a collaboratory because the Centre for Educational Leadership and Policy employs a model of working with universities, school districts and other research sites called research as co-learning. In co-learning research, all of the participants involved in the research project have a voice in all aspects of the research.
Why a collaboratory now?
Over the past year we have seen challenges emerge that were unforeseen before the global pandemic. Our response to the pandemic has driven by both policy decisions involving all aspects of educational context and leadership by those leading our individual and collective reactions to the challenges all educators are facing. A collaboratory is an effort to bring a collective effort to examining and undertaking research that informs educational contexts across the globe.
