Community of Enquiry
The School through the DEEP project has been experimenting with a particular approach to learning called Community of Enquiry. This approach uses research evidence as a stimulus for dialogue-based learning and deliberation. A 2-day Community of Enquiry training course will be run in the autumn of 2017 and possibly repeated in early 2018.
The DEEP project worked in one practice site (Carmarthenshire) to explore how to best support people with dementia from a human rights perspective.
Dialogue Based Learning and Development
Building on the success of the JRF and Health and Care Research Wales joint funded DEEP project which ended in 2016, we have been building relationships with practitioners, service users and researchers through events and conversations
Working co-productively is a key principal of the School and is a crucial element of the DEEP work.
We plan to develop an approach to critique the strengths and weaknesses of different service, programme and project evaluation tools
The idea of developing a series of ‘Magic Moments’ booklets, in different areas of Social Care, came out of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) and the Health and Care Research Wales funded Developing Evidence-Enriched Practice (DEEP) project; now part of the Wales School for Social Care Research.
Measuring Our Impact
Measuring and evaluating the impact the School has on increasing social care research capacity is very important to us. We have three main areas and a statement of what we will do to capture our impact.
