Through reflection\ud and evaluation the participants became aware that they were challenging their\ud own teaching style in response to the children’s exploratory learning. This became\ud the central focus for the practitioners involved as it changed their understanding\ud of their own practice. This paper endeavours to share the findings pertaining to\ud the reflection, collaboration and change process of participants involved in the\ud research project. It also describes practitioner involvement in this programme as\ud an effective example of encouraging non-academic practitioners to take part in\ud educational research.Peer-reviewedPost-prin
