Belbase, Shashidhar; Luitel, Bal Chandra; Taylor, Peter Charles
Online Submission
This paper discuses the thesis that autoethnography as tool in research provides the researcher to examine his or her pedagogical and research practices from his or lived evocative experiences that helps him or her in envisioning future research and instructional practices. The essence of this paper is to seek the possibilities of linking autoethnography as a method of inquiry that catalyses the transformative pedagogy positively in mathematics education. It is an outcome of my dissertation of Masters of Philosophy (M.Phil.) in Education on "My Journey of Learning and Teaching Mathematics from Traditionalism to Constructivism: A Portrayal of Pedagogical Metamorphosis". The authors have highlighted the importance of autoethnography in research in a way that permits researchers to apply flexible modes of inquiry from their life experiences with motives of change to take place in educational institutions and classroom practices.
