Summary: Although teaching and learning are at their heart social, at a tertiary level can be an isolating. As educators, we are constantly adapting our practices to meet new challenges. Reflective practice is crucial to continue developing our teaching practices. The Collaborative Reflective Experience and Practice in Education (CREPE) Faculty Research Group consists of eight academics within the School of Education at Deakin University who are conducting initial teacher education and reflective practice research with self-study methodologies. The group collaborates to perform meta-analysis via conversations regarding their research in both face-to-face and online (asynchronous) media. This research builds the capacity of these researchers both individually and collaboratively as well as augmenting their reflective practices through multiple, smaller research projects.
