In this second part of our blog series on the CASS Collaborative Cultures Project we share recent participatory research undertaken with staff at the Australian National University’s (ANU) College of Arts and Social Sciences (CASS) investigating the institutional, project and individual enablers and challenges of collaborative practice in a university context. We outline our process and findings to date and share our plans for next steps in action research and culture change to enhance collaborative cultures at the ANU.
