The MEd: Professional Enquiry in Education is an innovative course centred on practice-based learning and the use of a social constructivist pedagogy. It is managed by the Partnership for Professional Enquiry which consists of four local authorities, Network Educational Press and the University of Stirling. The course enables students to address the Chartered Teacher Standard which delineates a leadership role for chartered teachers embedded within a collaborative, evidence-informed professionalism which is new to Scotland.
We plan to launch an interactive web magazine and an associated seminar centred on collaborative professional enquiry (CPE), which will provide the Partnership for Professional Enquiry with the basis for developing systems which will support a community of practice involving students, schools, local authority and university staff and improve capability in terms of practitioner research and evidence-informed practice.
