Abstract

Educational Learning and Development: Building and Enhancing Capacity explores the topic of educational learning and development in order to examine issues that are impacting, either positively or negatively, on current research in this area. This is explored through ten groups of research participants from various countries, including circus families and teachers, students and teachers in a senior secondary art classroom, a parent-run alternative school, and refugees and migrants in a rural setting. These data sets are analysed through eight 'hot topics' and 'wicked problems' in contemporary education, seeking to uncover the capacity building potential of the research projects and what factors impacted on or assisted their development.
