[Abstract]: The intersection of theory, method and writing is a contentious and crucial site in which educational researchers can and must reflect self-critically on the effectiveness and significance of their research endeavours. Both the need for, and the potential benefits of, conducting such reflection are magnified when a team of researchers is involved. This paper discusses the deployment of three different but complementary approaches – dialogism, co-operative community and performance space –to integrating theory, method and writing in an ongoing study of Australian Traveller education. A team approach to achieving and reflecting on that integration encourages cross-fertilisation among the selected approaches, and contributes to their ongoing theorisation; it also constitutes a useful strategy for ongoing reflective practice and for promoting continuing professional learning in the authors’ contemporary workplaces.
