    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.

    Magic moments

    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.
