Keep checking back as this page is going to undergo a massive but gradual reconstruction. A lot will be transferred to http://www.spanglefish.com/livingtheorymasters where we are putting resources etc to support 'Living Educational Theory research - Masters Level'.
These lists of books, papers and websites have been developed initially for those engaged on a Living Educational Theory research Masters programme. They are grouped to help you find what you might be looking for. Some references will be found in more that one group.
Nothing is created in a vacuum, as with the knowledge you are creating through your Living Educational Theory research. So, you will want, and need to, continually develop your scholarship in order to appraise knowledge that has been created by others as well as yourself, and integrate insights you develop into your knowledge creating values-led research to improve it. Reading 'deep' and 'wide' takes time and effort and can feel overwhelming. So, in each group we have identified a few we think provide good places to start ('essential') and others ('recommended') when you make time to extend your 'cognitive range and concern' and develop your scholarship.
If you cant find what you are looking for, have a question, a concern... please do contact us and we will do our best to help and in the process you will help develop a FAQ page that will help us all.
