Sample text

This is because questions of the truth, conduct and connoisseurship of inquiry beg ethical, political and aesthetic considerations and reflections in the decisions made by researchers. These are already well serviced by arts-focused scholarship and deliberations, such as in questions on the qualities of participation and engagement, the limits of perception, and the challenges of legitimating and representing the very stuff of ‘phenomena’. A focus then on ‘the art and craft’ of educational research might also further open up queries as to why research might be characterised and contextualised in some ways rather than others with others, and as such, always already appears to suggest some purposefulness and intentionality, within or against a ‘tradition’ in an(y) account of educational research.

In various ways, it is these ‘folk’ who variously negotiate, settle and dispute a research question and the purview for the research, and why, if at all, it might or should count as an educational inquiry. It is never simply a question of construct validity, content validity or ecological validity. D. Reid have come to dominate much contemporary thought and activity in relation to educational research, such as that associated with ‘making a bid’. The terms of reference that govern much of this activity have focused researchers’ and readers’ attention primarily on the whats, whys, whens, wheres, hows, and whos of a study.

In its place, ignorance is not seen as a state to be ‘enlightened from’, by convincing argument and proof, even though much that passes as education research seems to be used for such purposes. Rather, we are invited to ‘have an experience’, and possibly, in learning from that, relate to ‘things’ differently, because of the discontinuities that have opened up during the practice of educational research: towards one’s knowledge, in one’s self, in ways of relating self to the self, and to others.
