Collegial Reflection on the Meaning of Metaphors in Learning: Emerging Theory and Practice
Nye, Adele; Foskey, Roslyn; Edwards, Helen
Studies in Continuing Education, v36 n2 p132-146 2014
As educators and lifelong learners, we were drawn together by the question: How have we fostered our own capacity for agency, self-efficacy and risk-taking in the research practices we utilize? This paper reveals a connectivity and enabling thread that has enriched our experiences within and across our disciplinary areas. In particular this paper articulates the value of metaphor as a conceptual tool as well as sharing insights and reflections on the workings of progressive integration into communities of practice.
