Abstract

This interactive workshop is designed for pre- and postgraduate students, supervisors and examiners of doctoral studies, also post-doctoral researchers interested in further developing and publicising their work. It invites participants to consider specifically the theoretical/epistemological underpinnings of their research: how these came about, how they are put to work in their individual projects and what the implications might be regarding the contribution of theory and theorising in social life. The primary objective of the workshop is to bring together present and potential doctoral students, experienced researchers and anyone interested in educational theory and theorising to facilitate dialogue and interaction on this oftentimes ‘slippery’ element of the research process. In the course of the day we will also demonstrate various methods for generating dialogue about theory, that both acknowledge prior knowledge and nurture new ideas and understandings.
