To develop a mode of educational research which speaks both of and to the teacher we require more study of the lives of teachers.

The studies employ a range of different methodologies allowing the reader to assess their varying strengths and weaknesses, but throughout they reaffirm the centrality of the teacher in educational research

Explorations in narrative research by Ivor Goodson( )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There has been a major 'turn' towards narrative, biographical and life history approaches in the academy over the last 30 years. What are some of the new directions in narrative research? How do narrative research approaches help us to understand the world differently? What do we learn by listening to stories and narratives? How do narratives extend our understanding that other research approaches do not? This collection of work grows from a symposium organised to explore new directions in narrative research. What emerges is a fascinating, innovative and generative series of essays, generally exploring narrative enquiry and more specifically themes of culture and context, identity, teacher education and methodology. This book will be useful for students and researchers using narrative and biographical methods in a range of disciplines, including education, sociology, cultural and development studies

This book explores some of the major processes involved in the definition of school subject knowledge. Using historical ethnographic methods, the contributors to the collection highlight and examine some of the factors involved at national, institutional and classroom levels in the making of school subjects. The first section of the book outlines the theoretical and methodological basis for the study off school subjects, and the reasons for and the possibilities of such a study are considered. In the second section some histories of school curricula are presented from a variety of settings - colonial schools in Africa, working-class schools of the nineteenth century, nursery schools - and the conflicting forces of determination and change in school subjects are identified and examined. The third section focuses on the contemporary school situation and the papers isolate and investigate some of the interest groups and social processes which enter into or affect the realization of school knowledge in the classroom
Education, globalisation and new times by Stephen J Ball( )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The late 1970s and early 1980s was a period of crisis within the education sector, out of which came an extensive, ongoing and global project of reform. Policies proliferated and education was no longer a policy backwater. The Journal of Education Policy offered, and continues to offer, a forum for debate, informed analysis and policy theorisation, with its central focus on critical policy analysis which seeks to explore and interrogate the ways in which policy engages with practice. Education, Globalisation and New Times comprises a selection of the most influential papers published over the 21 years of the journal's history. Written by many of the leading scholars in the field, these seminal papers cover a variety of subjects, sectors and levels of education

Professional knowledge and educational restructuring in europe by Ivor Goodson( )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

European welfare institutions such as education and health care are restructuring their organisations in terms of decentralisation, deregulation, privatization and so forth. As a consequence professional positions and demands on professional competencies in these institutions are in transition. At the same time European societies are changing in different ways, e.g. in terms of a "knowledge society" as well as in demographic and cultural changes. Professionals such as teachers and nurses are meeting such changes in their work with students and clients. Thus, there is a need to study these transitions and changes. Here we are doing this from a "bottom-up" perspective where we are comparing experiences in different institutional and national contexts. This study combines two kinds of narrative research; a study of the systemic narratives produced by governments who are restructuring educational systems and the life history narratives of those professionals working within those systems and their perspectives on ongoing restructuring
