Using Narrative to Explore the Relationships Between Crisis, Innovation and Pedagogy
This paper explores the nature of narrative in educational research, examining the resurgence of this form of research inquiry. A personal perspective on the nature of narrative is presented. All of the seven narratives are examined in terms of how the crisis nature of SARS stimulated an innovative response that clearly related to key themes which can be viewed as principles for effective pedagogy. These principles are "making connections", "developing confidence", and "maintaining focus". It is suggested that these principles may provide an effective framework for examining other contexts of educational change.
Keywords: narrative; analysis of complexity; connections; confidence; focus
