The Use of Co-operative inquiry in developing an inter-professional model of learning

Project co-ordinators:

Valentine Scarlett; School of Education, Social Work and Community Education

University of Dundee

Robert Muirhead; School of Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing and Midwifery

University of Dundee

slide2
Basic theme : to explore how students, from different professions might prepare for collaboration in the work place
slide3
Three elements that seem essential

to enable collaborative working

Effective communication

Respect for and understanding of each other’s roles

Sharing of knowledge, values, responsibility, visions and outcomes

(Henneman et al 1995)

slide4
Why Co-operative Inquiry?

‘all those involved in the research endeavour are both co-researchers…and co-subjects’

(Reason 1999)

slide5
All involved were engaged in a critically reflective analysis of their practice alongside others through the use of Double Loop Testing

(Agyris and Schon 1974 cited Redmond 2006)

slide6
METHOD

Two 3 hour workshops:

15 paediatric nursing students

36 social work students

Workshop one: PP with discussion

Workshop Two: tutor enabled group discussions

slide7
EVALUATION

Based on questionnaires and open debate at end of session 1

Main outcome; Group based exploration of themes more effective

slide8
PP Group

Effective Communication

PN ; 25% (2/8) PN ; 85% (11/13)

SW ; 58% (21/36) SW ; 96% ( 25/26)

Respect / understanding roles

PN ; 50% (4/8) PN ; 92% (12/13)

SW ; 94% (34/36) SW ; 88% (23/26)

Sharing knowledge, values

responsibility, visions, outcomes

PN ; 62.5% (5/8) PN ; 92% (12/13)

SW ; 97% (35/36) SW ; 96% (25/26)

slide9
Co operative Inquiry : Was it effective as a method of research?

Co-operative Inquiry is highly collaborative but it was difficult to engage the students and tutors from the beginning. Once the process was under way the students were keen to inform the process on their terms

The inquiry mirrors what we are trying to enable the students to do i.e. work in partnership with each other and service users but it does bring to light the possible difficulties e.g.. others perception of what you are doing, time constraints, differing priorities, to name but a few

slide10
What Learning did we take forward into the next cycle of our inquiry in terms of how we researched and evidenced our work with the students?

…………………………………………….

  • We recognised that what we had done was a piece of Action Research.
slide11
Lewin described action research ‘as a way of generating knowledge about a social system while, at the same time, attempting to change it’

(Lewin, 1945,cited Drummond and Themessl-Huber)

We were in effect doing the same,

Action:

To understand the process of interprofessional learning and to continue to learn about it

To change the process to suit the needs of the students,and the university

slide12
From Buchy and Ahmed 2007, Argyris and Schon (1974)

have also conceptualized learning processes as a succession of learning loops

where the learner moves from following the rules

(single loop) to changing the rules (double loop) to eventually learning

about learning (triple loop learning). Critical reflection is essential to move

between the loops.

learning is a dynamic process where the learners constantly critically revisit

their actions to adjust their behaviour and thoughts. And eventually this is how

one reaches ‘transformative learning’ defined by Mezirow as:

the process by which we transform our taken for granted frames of

reference (meaning, perspectives, habits of mind, mind sets) to make

them more inclusive, discriminating, open, emotionally capable of

change, and reflective so that they may generate beliefs and opinion that

will prove more true or justified to guide action.

(Mezirow, J. (2000) p. 8)

slide13
So what did we learn and how did it impact on and transform our practice It is still early days BUT for starters
  • We ran the two sessions in one day
  • We still did a PP BUT it was much reduced and the students worked in small groups at key points and fed back discussion points
  • The small groups were self facilitated with regular visits from the tutors
  • The students were asked to comment on the learning process
  • Outcomes to date………..
