Judith Duncan is a professor of Education at the University of Canterbury. Her fields of research include: Childhood Studies, Children’s Rights & Children’s Participation, Early Childhood Education, Early Childhood Educators Practices and Training, Educational Policy & Gender and Education.
Duncan recently published a book, which UBC Education Library has acquired, entitled, “Research partnerships in early childhood education : teachers and researchers in collaboration.” The book is about: How can teachers deepen their understanding of their work? How can researchers make sure their work is grounded in and responsive to community needs? In this assemblage of rich examples of partnership research in early years education, Duncan and Conner set out how early childhood teachers and researchers can work in partnerships that benefit them both. Drawing on examples of successful partnerships from Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, they tell the stories of the successes, struggles, insights, and opportunities that come from working in such partnerships.
