Heimans, Stephen; Singh, Parlo – Policy Futures in Education, 2018

In this paper we draw on his ideas to present some resources for "gathering"--for doing education policy research with others--which we term "critical-dissensual collaboration". We believe that our education policy research "critique from…

Sojot, Amy N. – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
Asking after the self in the process of learning without a definitive endpoint or prescribed path to creating that knowledge presents a way to consider a self that is distinct from assumptions of what constitutes an ideal learner.
