Re: [xmca] Idea for roundtable discussion at AERA

Hi Monica -  I do have an interest in drawing insights from the different research traditions in educational enquiries of the kind, 'How do I improve what I am doing?' . 

You might find interesting:

Justifying the use of a living theory methodology in the creation of your living educational theory. Responding to Cresswell.

Jack Whitehead, Department of Education, University of Bath: Notes for doctoral and masters students 14 June 2009



I'd be very interested in showing how insights from cultural historical research can be integrated within educational research that addresses the theme of the 2013 AERA conference on poverty.  I'm just getting proposals together to meet the deadline for proposals of the 23rd July.

In relation to your questions, especially about praxis, you might be interested in Marie Huxtable's Ph.D Thesis -

Marie Huxtable's Ph.D. (2012) Thesis, How do I Evolve Living-Educational-Theory Praxis in Living-boundaries?. Graduation 5th July 2012, University of Bath.

Love Jack.

Does anyone have work that speaks to the effort of researchers to work in praxis, agents of change in the constraints of the academic institutions and as people living real lives? How the efforts of researchers crafting their research might be related to exploring the theme of the conference, which is poverty?

When Martin Dobson, a colleague, died in 2002 the last thing he said to me
was 'Give my Love to the Department'. In the 20 years I'd worked with
Martin it was his loving warmth of humanity that I recall with great life
affirming pleasure and I'm hoping that in Love Jack we can share this
value of common humanity.
