Presentation abstract

The paper explore an Ubuntu infused research processes used in 500 school project: Making Schools Better( MSB), a project conducted in five rural provinces in South Africa. 46 academics from the college of education at University of South Africa reflected upon togetherness, as partly a product of people's feeling inspired by the spirit of Ubuntu, an African connectness. On an epistemolgical level, Ubuntu philosophy implies that people consider knowledge creation as being a collaborative effort. Semi-structured interviews, observation and questionnaires were used to collect both qualitative and quantitative data.Results indicate that the management of the  500 school  MSB project was in line with and inspired by the work of Indigenous methodoligists and resonated with  the worldview of Ubuntu
