The Centre for the Study of Practice and Culture in Education is an inclusive, playful, experimental research collective that interacts closely and dynamically with Birmingham City University’s community of nationally renowned practitioner education programmes. CSPACE supports the development and fruition of the research ideas of BCU staff, students and people from the communities that the University serves. A central principle of CSPACE is that practice-based research is a key aspect of the professional identity of health and education practitioners. Practitioner research is a vital form of knowledge production that needs to be fed back into the policy-making cycle.
