Developing a Concept of 'Refraction': Exploring Educational Change and Oppositional Practice
Goodson, Ivor; Rudd, Tim
Educational Practice and Theory, v34 n1 p5-24 2012
In much of our experiences of, and research in, educational policy we see how global and national policies are often reinterpreted and redirected at local and classroom level. In this paper, we highlight some initial thoughts relating to the development of the concept of 'refraction' as a lens for both theoretical development and for informing methodological approaches and empirical investigation that may provide rich and contextualised understandings of schools and practice.
