Digital research as a resource for reimagining Further Education

Robert Smith, Vicky Duckworth

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    This paper draws on the project Further Education in England: transforming lives and communities. Data ? comprising a series of narratives from learners, teachers, employers and learners? family members ? were video recorded and shared via a project website; an inter-related and multi-faceted digital platform. This catalysed what we describe as virtually enhanced engagement and constituted a ?thirdspace? (Soja, 1998) i.e. a space in which further and adult education could be reimagined, through a collective dialogical interaction of practitioners and students as more than the quantitatively?defined abstract space that current policy discourse reifies.
