Abstract

In this presentation I explained that have spent much of my professional life in education as an educational action researcher contributing to educational knowledge through the generation and testing of living educational theories. I take a living educational theory to be an individual's explanation of their educational influence in their own learning, in the learning of others and in the learning of the social formations in which we live, work and research. At the heart of these explanations are the value-laden practical principles that an individual uses to give meaning and purpose to their life. These explanatory principles become the standards of judgement for evaluating the validity of an individual's knowledge-claim in their living educational theories.
