Critical Complexity and Education Research


liquid molecules

This interactive workshop will engage participants in considering how understandings from critical complexity have the potential to change how we consider and conduct both educational research and teacher education. Critical complexity brings together insights from complexity theory with critical perspectives such as posthumanism, to recognise the situated, historic, distributed and dynamic character of teaching and learning. Drawing on stimulus from both theory and practice, we invite participants to develop new understandings of how these insights might change research, teacher education, and the positioning of these relative to contemporary issues such as inequality and climate emergency.
