Sustaining Synergies: Collaborative Research and Researching Collaboration explores the experiences, expectations, potential pitfalls and possible outcomes of team-based education research and publishing. It addresses vitally important questions for those engaging in collaborative research, including:

  • What are the different forms that can be taken by effective, efficient and ethical collaborative research?
  • What does researching collaboration demonstrate about the character and effectiveness of that collaboration?
  • How can collaborative research and researching collaboration generatesustaining synergies for university researchers?

In addressing these questions, the book presents accounts by Australian education researchers, clustered around the themes of capacity-building, pedagogies and ethics. In particular, the chapters elicit a set of practical strategies, underpinned by philosophical and methodological principles, that will be valuable for university research teams seeking to generate substantial outcomes through sustaining synergies in and through collaborative research.
