In one sense, this is an end in that we have come to the concluding point of a fascinating and educative project. It has deepened our understanding of issues in practitioner research which we previously glimpsed, but which we understood in far less detail and complexity than we do now. In another sense, however, this point is another beginning. One rarely puts new understanding behind oneself. Rather, as Jacqui Potter suggests in her study (Chapter 3), new understanding begins to bed down into one’s mind and practices to the point where one does not recognise it as new any longer. While this has not yet fully happened for us-it is early days-the learning we have undergone through the project has influenced us in subtle, as well as more obvious, ways, causing us to think and act differently.
