Practice As Research network seminar series

This seminar is organised by the Practice As Research network at the UCL Institute of Education. The network aims to bring together the many different strands of practice-led/based research across all disciplines so as to not be limited by disciplinary conventions, but instead to benefit from cross-disciplinary fertilisation.

In the wider academic communities, there are many terms in use to describe the research-practice nexus we are talking about in our network. For the sake of consistency we adopt the term 'practice as research'. Fundamentally, the network considers practice as research any practice that is underpinned by scholarship and academic rigour.
