Critical friendship as a pivot in teaching interventions
Issue Date: 
Proceedings of the Redesigning pedagogy: culture, knowledge and understanding conference, Singapore, May 2007.
This paper explores how a teacher and a researcher can work together to support and encourage each other to achieve outcomes that neither partner could have achieved by working alone. One way of doing this involves deliberately introducing a critical element into the relationship that is intended to raise awareness, promote noticing and change practice for the better. This might seem to be an unconventional and impracticable notion but it is possible to show and explain why critical friendships work. I also discuss hindrances to the development of critical friendships and suggest some ways in which these can be overcome. I finish with a definition-cum-characterisation of teaching interventions as reconsidered through the lens of critical friendship.
Paper was presented as part of the symposium titled: "Building capacity through teaching interventions: Different means towards the same ends?"
