Transforming the Naive Researcher: Collaborative Participation in a Process of Learning Creates Opportunities

Dr Barbara Lasky, Dr Irene Tempone.

Engagement in the process of learning is an essential ingredient in the transformation of an individual. Participation in the process leads to opportunity while failure to engage results in disadvantage. The authors posit that for first-time researchers, engaging in collaborative research relationships with the right people, will set them on the path to becoming productive researchers, and will help them do so more effectively than if they remain independent.
