Unpublished writing

I have this in two sections at the moment, the first is on accounts and presentations created with an audience in mind, the other is proposals submitted to conferences.

I have worked on a number of accounts and presentations created with an audience in mind. I think the precision and care that is required to communicate to and with others contributes enormously to my own learning. It is thinking that is often unrecognised and undervalued but contributes to my theorising my own practice which is in the last 2 sections of the living TASC knot.

Usually when presenting to a group or 'running' INSET I have not gone to the level of care needed to produce an account; PowerPoint slides on a sheet is as good as it gets usually. However such notes dont give recognition to the educational influence I have had in my own learning nor the educational influence my 'audience' have had on my learning. It is often said the best way to learn is to teach but that is usually left at 'practice' and the opportunity to take the learning through to 'theorising' that practice is usually ignored or lost. Hmm... I have only just thought of that as I have worked on this section and recognised what learning I still need to do from the work I have done so far for the Teachers Leading programme. Luckily I have video from two of the introductory sessions and there is still an opportunity in March to collect video data from the third of the second sessions.

This is an example of what I mean by taking the care to learn from the opportunity to present

I prepared for  a lecture to University of Bath PGCE students Feb 2007 on gifted and talented education.

I finished working on the transfer paper which I was examined on in February 2008.  I scraped in under the wire transfered to the doctoral programme officially. I eventually managed to work with the questions my examiners gave me to to use the seminar to contribute to my research and develop this site .

I have worked on this 'Improving Educational Practice And Generating Educational Knowledge'. as a web page. This is as far as it got by 20th March 2009.

Proposals

I have written a number of proposals to present at conferences; some of which I have had accepted and some rejected. Writing the proposals has been an interesting challenge, as well as dealing with the acceptance or rejection of them, so I add both to illustrate the progress of my research.

Presenting the paper was an experience - I discovered the night before I hadnt answered my question. Still, the rewrite was an improvement and in the course of doing it I recongised the values I use as explanatory principles and which form my living standards of judgment. How good does it get!

Huxtable, M and Whitehead, J. (2008) Developing Inclusive Gifted And Talented Educational Theory And Practice In Relation To Civic Responsibility proposal submitted for the BERA 2008 conference.

paper - in the unpublished. I sent it  to be reviewed and they rejected it for inclusion in the conference proceedings.  Still, bloodied but this time unbowed I worked with the reviewers comments to see if I could get it to a stage that I was happy with it and felt it responds to the criticisms ready for presentation in August 08. So this site also has my stories of ruin - and this is one in some respects. I have redrafted the paper and  this is as far as it got by the day  of presentation redraft. it has taken my thinking beyond so it was worth doing  and I will return at a future date and look at the movement between the first and this latest version.
