MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
Jack Whitehead has worked on his research programme into the nature of educational theory since 1973 as a Lecturer in Education at the University of Bath. His tenured contract finished on the 31 August 2009 and he started a three year Visiting Fellow appointment on the 1st September 2009. Following his first degree in Physics and Chemistry Jack studied the philosophy and psychology of education for his Academic Diploma and the psychology of education for his Masters Degree. In his doctorate he develop the idea that each individual could produce their living educational theory as an explanation of their educational influence in their own learning, in the learning of others and in the learning of social formations. He has been using ICT in developing multi-media accounts to show the meanings of embodied values of humanity in explanations of educational influence. You can access his doctorate and the 20 living theory doctorates he has supervised to successful completion over the past ten years at http://www.actionresearch.net. The latest of Jack's publications with Jean McNiff is Action Research Living Theory (London; Sage) and you can see some of the influences of the creative engagement of other practitioner-researchers with these ideas in the Action Research in Guyuan section and in the work supported by Jacqueline Delong in Canada from the front page of http://www.actionresearch.net. You can engage with Jack's ideas in the guest e-forum for the 7th World Congress on Action Learning Action Research and Process Management at http://www.wcar2006.nl/forum/viewforum.php
