Title: The knight’s move: Its relevance for educational research and development
Authors: McWilliam, Erica
Issue Date: Jun-2009
Citation: Paper presented at the 3rd Redesigning Pedagogy International Conference, Singapore, 1 - 3 June 2009
Abstract: This paper utilises the ‘knight’s move’ in chess as an analogy for broadening our repertoire of research epistemologies, methodologies and relationships. It explores the imperatives for moving on from a simple reliance on ‘straight line’ thinking in educational inquiry and pedagogical practice in order to utilize and enhance our epistemological agility and thereby mobilize a more nuanced ‘second generation’ of educational research. It is argued that the strategic deployment of ‘knight’s move’ methodologies is more in keeping with contemporary forms of cultural production but will better serve inquiry into the very complex problems that need successful resolution in this century, and the sorts of relationships we will need to develop with other non‐traditional players.
