Reflections and learning from the Fife collaborative action research programme 2015-2017
Reflections and learning from the Fife collaborative action research programme 2015-2017Uploaded by Lucy Janes, 02/05/18 12:13 This collaborative action research (CAR) report highlights some of the learning from the CAR programme in Fife.
The content covers both the positive learning that resulted from bringing together a diverse range of practitioners to undertake an inquiry, and the challenges inherent in that process. The report was co-produced by practitioners in Fife and What Works Scotland.
Reflecting the co-produced, collaborative approach to this work, the report has three sections, each written by a different participant involved in the Fife CAR programme.
Collectively, the authors highlight key learning points about operationalising a CAR approach in the community planning context and share these insights to those who also participated and contributed to the Fife CAR programme, to those involved in the ongoing work in Fife on improving collaboration and tackling ‘wicked issues’, and also to other interested researchers and policymakers. It is the authors’ intention that the learning report it will continue to stimulate dialogue and discussion about how to undertake collaborative working and inquiries to improve public service reform, research, and evidence based policy-making.
