In: The role of participants in education research: ethics, epistemologies, and methods. Routledge Research in Education Series (87). Taylor & Francis (Routledge), Abingdon, OX.

This chapter explores the formation of a school/university research team (SURT) which originated in personal and inevitably professional relationships. The members of SURT are drawn from various educational instiuttuions. Prior relationships among the members and an interest in forging and stenghtening school/university links have been the catalyst for the formation of SURT. The decision-making process has been underpinned by a mutual desire to work within a collaborative framework and the challenge has been to articulate a vision and offer opportunities commensurate with the ambitions and enthusiasm of the participants. This chapter explores this endeavour.
