"Relational Inquiry in Educational Administration and Leadership"
 
The relational research program offers a fruitful approach to the study of educational administration and leadership. Built on five relational extensions and three key concepts, it offers a means of engaging with the messiness of the social world while focused on making a productive contribution. In this workshop Dr Eacott will facilitate dialogue and debate concerning how one might go about mobilizing the relational methodology in developing a research project, or writing a dissertation / thesis, journal article, or book. Drawing on actual examples from Honours, doctoral projects and his own work, this hands-on workshop will introduce participants to the relational template, a resource developed by Dr. Eacott to assist those mobilizing the relational approach in their writing projects.
