Revisiting Critical Event Narrative Inquiry
This thought-provoking research anthology adopts a postmodern stance and fills in a gap of knowledge for the education of professional development in teacher education, health sciences and the arts. Allowing subjectivity and multiple voices, the authors add to the intimate and negotiated knowledge of being and becoming – indigenous, architect, mother, teacher, health researcher, and supervisor. In fifteen chapters, the authors share knowledge of pain and reward in critical events in the realm of professional identity formation. The book provides a selection of personal and far-reaching stories and adds to the reflexivity of memories of critical events.

Modern Individualism under the Test of Cosmopolitanism
Global citizenship education is an essential topic in an increasingly interconnected world. Indeed the need for inclusive and globally conscious education, embedded in cosmopolitanism, is recognised as a way to prepare individuals to navigate diverse cultures, address global challenges, and actively participate in a globalised world.

Being both scientific and political, these challenges require an interdisciplinary exploration of citizenship education, merging sociology, philosophy, as well as education and training sciences. To do this, Global Citizenship Education: Modern Individualism under the Test of Cosmopolitanism offers a framework that integrates Durkheim's holistic approach with critical republicanism.

The book is also rooted in the analysis of data collected through GlobalSense, a research project that focuses on preparing teachers to navigate the complexities of GCE within an international context. By presenting both a theoretical reflection and an analysis of an international training program within universities, this book can be of interest to academics, teacher trainers and (future) teachers themselves.

Abstract

Using a cartographic approach, this article addresses ableism in the Chilean educational system. By analyzing audiovisual production, and specifically, the creation of storyboards, theoretical-methodological tools are provided for mapping desire flows and micro-movements produced in and about the public school toward and against the production of able educational institutions. Thus, the analysis stresses how human and nonhuman materialities mutually affect each other in an educational context. By focusing on the analysis of videos and storyboards, new discursive-material relationships appear in the school, which allow us to recognize and problematize ableist practices, and at the same time, open spaces for new creative approaches to challenge the able school norm.

Abstract

Visual methods are an innovative design space for study methodologies with young children. The accessibility of visual media, and flexibility of their design and use, has spurred methodological innovations that stretch the boundaries of intergenerational research. This article explores the visual dialogic nexus in research methods tailored to investigate discourse. The research sought to uncover the perspectives of young children and their teachers about their discursive affordances in the first year of school. Employing an iterative design process, bespoke visual mediation tools were collaboratively created with a visual artist to capture the intergenerational viewpoints of the participants. This article reconceptualises discourses as ‘viscourses’ through a Foucauldian post-structuralist lens. This reframing emphasizes the impact of the discursive gaze and manipulation of art elements and principles as themes for scrutiny during the design phase. The resulting visual mediation tools underwent pilot testing with two focus groups of 5-year-old children and their class teachers. Findings from the pilot study underscore the potential of visual mediation tools for generating authentic contexts that enable participants to ‘inhabit’ a time and place within a semiotic space. The method facilitates capture of multi-faceted data, including evidence of children’s higher order thinking concerning abstract phenomenon.

Abstract

This essay and accompanying video explore the concept of the unseen as a posthuman position and its impact on teaching and learning. It theorises how the covid-19 pandemic and virtual learning environments have revealed previously unseen aspects of students’ lives, such as their working spaces and home environments. Drawing on posthuman philosophy and the rhizome metaphor to consider the complex and interconnected nature of the unseen, the essay discusses how awareness of the unseen is crucial for effective teaching. This essay also describes the development of the short film Unseen, which was inspired by my own unseen struggles whist trying to develop a presentation for the Association of Visual Pedagogies twitter conference. The film is an invitation to consider unseen aspects of your own life that may affect your learning and teaching, with an extended invitation to engage in further shared thinking via Padlet.

Abstract

Science teacher educators have a complex role in preparing future science teachers, giving them the content and pedagogical and technological knowledge. This research examines using a gamified laboratory simulation tool (Labster), where access was given to a cohort of science pre-service teachers (pst s) in the third year of their Initial Teacher Education for a semester. A mixed-method approach was adopted to generate data for this case study. Schulman’s pedagogical content knowledge provided the theoretical background, whilst framework was deployed to identify factors in implementing Labster, including usability, motivation, and perceived use. The data determined that despite the ongoing engagement and interest in games and gamification in the wider community, the perceived engagement and interest were not reflected in the responses of the undergraduate science pst s in the study. pst s reported that they did not feel that it improved their content knowledge.

Abstract

In this short piece I am going to reflect on my reaction to a commercial video and advertisement campaign by my university in Tokyo, Japan. The campaign 帝京生のリアル [The daily life of Teikyo students] ran in April 2023 (www.teikyo-u.ac.jp/campus_for_life/photo_project). The following is a translation of the Japanese voiceover from the cm which includes the voice of a concerned parent, the voice of a high school student, who is unsure about which course, which university, and which career to pursue.

Abstract

This article describes the relationships between cruelty, schooling and the possibilities that the school offers as a refuge in the face of the inexorable circumstances that seal the fates of a large part of the population living in conditions marked by intensifying inequalities. The work is based on a multiple design which included an audiovisual production workshop in 2022 and 2023 involving students and teachers from a high school in the Buenos Aires metropolitan region and the university. Through the biographical-narrative method, students have carried out in-depth interviews, collaborative work and activities shared in the same school with one of the teachers for over three years. Research results express how, as perceived by high school students and teachers, the school serves as a space that saves others and themselves, a place of support, as well as transmission and education, even amidst instances of cruelty in their daily experiences.

Abstract

The paper dates back to the period when the author became acquainted with Loet Leydesdorff and is mainly devoted to the research that the author had the opportunity to conduct together with Loet. Major research topics include the development of the Triple Helix model and the dynamic model of inter-social communication, which appear to be closely interrelated. The full consequences of his work are yet to be realized. I also present a vision of possible applications and future extensions of Loet’s work.
