Theorising Education

Theorising Education shows basic theoretical moves for the educational imagination by stripping each move down to its most elementary function. The author opens out five basic theoretical moves – each one able to be used with the others, so that, by the end of the book, you will have the beginnings of a theoretical tool kit. This tool kit will enable you to imagine possible educational worlds different from ones you may have already encountered.

A first of its kind, Theorising Education is for the person who wants to learn how to think about education in an active, imaginative and systematic way.
