Welcome to my Fellowship. This website is an attempt to collect together, in one place, all of the disparate aspects and contradictions of a Fellowship which I am working on alone, with the help of many people.
The Fellowship has given me a self-directed space in my life, dedicated to thinking. It has held the every-day chaos created by other peoples at bay while I follow a line of thought or struggle with a concept or understanding. It has also given me the opportunity to capture and embed this thinking in learning and teaching resources, research papers, videos, a blog and now this webpage so that they can be discussed, pondered over, and made fit-for-purpose by others.
This Fellowship is part of many conversations; discipline based education research, proto-theories and curriculum design theories, expectations of and assumptions about student learning, discipline based communication, discipline based attitudes and skills, communication between teacher and student… The conversations took place in seminars, workshops and conference presentations, coffee shops and corridors, around family dinner tables, at art/architecture exhibitions, during tutorials and after work drinks, face-to-face and via e-mail . Each conversation added a richness and depth to my thinking and hopefully set others onto their own path of discovery. The conversation continues and you are now also part of this story.
