Abstract

Colleagues are invited to join an innovative, presentation event by our Research Into Professional Practice in Learning and Education (RIPPLE) network. RIPPLE meets monthly, in a pub, to discuss approaches to researching professional practice. Our PubMethods meetings have fostered a creative, collaborative, inter-disciplinary, participatory, and radical community; one that could be described as typified by thick democracy (Fielding and Moss, 2011), where ‘…a range of voices … [are] heard, not only through the narratives of learning [about our research practices], but also through the leveller of laughter and the eagerness of exploration’ (ibid: 158). We will explore how for us PubMethods enables a distinct opportunity, one which we have come to reflect upon as radical because we ‘“re-see” each other as persons rather than role occupants’ within our university setting (ibid: 79).

Our event begins with an invitation to conference colleagues to join a live PubMethods meeting between the final session on Day One of the Conference and the Conference dinner. We continue on Day Two with a symposium-style session, ‘in the round’, beginning in the style of a PubMethods meeting. We will reflect on our personal meaning-making from PubMethods through a range of lenses including: democracy, expertise, and identity/positionality. We invite colleagues to join us in open-discussion of the powerful possibilities of our practice.
