How do we define research? Does it need definition since it is, for most part a thinking skill that is made visible through a written output? Or something tangible like a project, a module, an art work... I think what I need is to ground the idea or the concept of research into statements or beliefs.
1. Research is asking questions ans finding answers.
2. Research is a process that entails collaboration - not just cooperation and coordination.
3. Research is a conversation.
4. Research is an invitation for you to stand on the shoulders of giants. And this is both an honor and a privilege.
I wonder how my colleagues see research and, in the practice of teaching ATLs, how would a belief or thesis statement on research factor in effective pedadgogy.
