Research in Action is Liverpool Hope University’s peer-reviewed journal designed to encourage the sharing of ideas and innovations in teaching and learning by making connections between research and practice.
Each edition brings together a selection of high quality research recently undertaken by Hope postgraduate students, our teaching staff and within networks with which we are engaged. The publication showcases collaborations between the School of Teacher Education and our partnership schools, undertaken to advance the understanding and improvement of practice. These contributions offer research-informed and scholarly ideas and inspiration to encourage professional learning and dialogue. The journal also includes updates of new publications, details of upcoming events, and school-university partnership opportunities.
The journal aims to support a stimulating forum for professional dialogue amongst educators within and across institutions, building networks amongst our lively professional community of new and existing teachers, teacher educators, and colleagues from partnership organisations.
We hold a range of seminars and other events throughout the academic year, offering a forum for students, academics and practitioners to share and develop their ideas in a collegial and supportive atmosphere. CEPA represents a broad set of interests within its four Research Programmes: Teacher Education, Higher Education, Philosophy of Education, and Citizenship, Social Cohesion and Social Change.
We welcome collaborations from outside the university, and if you are interested in attending any events or sharing your own work, please contact either of the Associate Directors, Dr Catherine O'Connell or Dr David Lundie. Some events are aligned with other centres in the university, and we have a series co-funded by the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain (PESGB) North West branch.
