20 SES 01, Session Zero: Framing and Reframing Universities and Network 20 in a Radically Changing Society; Rethinking Research Communities, Engagement and Civic Socialization
Same procedure as last year – as every year – and then not! Session Zero is about creating identity and building capacity within our network Like other years the aim of this central and recurring workshop is to draw together as many as possible of the presenters in Network 20. The objective is striving to build a small research community which will work together during the conference and sessions in the network. Through active engagement of the participants, we will share our understanding of the beliefs and values, which underpin focuses and challenges in Network 20. We will share our own research background and present activities so that we are not strangers when the presentations take place. Through these activities, we will work at building what Maxine Greeme has called 'common-ground'. Similar sessions at previous conferences have proved very successful in building a sense of community amongst presenters to Network 20 for the duration of the conference. The specific activity this year will relate to the conference theme and build upon research in the notion of framing and reframing (Lakoff, 2014). In these times of fast and radically change in Western societies educational researchers has to, not just reflect on the economically, politically and socially issues, but more than ever need to reflect and take action in relation to dilemmas and ambivalences in the educational research contexts. This is both an individual and a team challenging process taking place in researcher communities of practice.
