Meeting Description:

27th Annual Ethnography in Education Research Forum

''Educators and Ethnographers Filling Ideological and Implementational Spaces''

February 24-25, 2006
University of Pennsylvania
Graduate School of Education
3700 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA

Throughout the world, ideological and implementational gaps continue to develop
between globalizing forces and national educational policies on the one hand and
pedagogical and social justice demands in classrooms and schools on the other.
Educators who negotiate these gaps on a daily basis search for third spaces and
creative ways to fill them. They struggle to meet the demands of standardized
assessments while trying to create curricula that are both engaging and relevant
for students with diverse backgrounds. They seek out pedagogical strategies for
helping their students benefit from the social and economic advantages of
globalization without sacrificing local ways of being and doing. Educational
researchers, in turn, attempt to understand the inter-connections and
disparities between different levels of educational practice - from
policy-making, to curricular design, to the work of classroom teachers. These
researchers collaborate with teachers and administrators to bridge
implementational gaps and to reconcile local ideologies with those reflected in
educational policy, including ways of transforming, resisting and challenging
those ideologies.

The Ethnography in Education Research Forum invites papers that explore these
issues by documenting grassroots responses to varying levels of educational
policy, describing teacher-researcher collaboration in the negotiation of third
spaces, making theoretical and methodological connections between the study of
societal level phenomena and local processes, bringing to light covert responses
to overt policy decisions, and critically examining relationships between
academic and public interests.
