Hall, Graeme W. & Danby, Susan J. (2004) School-University Partnerships: The Interactional Work of the Principal in Meetings. In McWilliam, Erica L., Danby, Susan J., & Knight, John (Eds.) Performing educational research : theories, methods and practices. Post Pressed, Flaxton, Qld, pp. 375-395.


The notion of "partnership" has been a powerful one in regard to notions of school improvement and educational reform in recent years. The traditional construct that the achievement of children’s potential is primarily the concern of schools has given way to a readiness by other social institutions such as universities to accept some responsibility and to participate in the school education system. As institutions that form part of the educational fabric of our communities, it is logical that universities and schools would establish partnership relationships for a number of purposes. One such purpose, given that a basic role of universities in research, is clearly in the area of developing the knowledge base about all aspects of schooling and, in particular, about learning and teaching.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
