Members of our community have been developing new ways to, “…inspire people to embrace the values of democracy and contribute towards the ideals of ensuring a just and fair society” (Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory, 2013). For instance:
- The use of multi-screen SKYPE and living posters has been evolving and spreading. The next opportunity for you to connect into an event will be in January with members of the Network in Educational Action Research of Ireland. Do send us your living poster and updates anytime and keep checking to see what is new on the living poster page.
- Practitioner-researchers have begun using our Community Space to share and offer support with early drafts of living-theory papers.
- A SKYPE post-doctoral research group has been established to provide opportunities for mutual support and learning. (contact us for more details)As you enjoy the papers in this issue we hope you will feel inspired to offer your own and contribute to the growth of our community and the flourishing of humanity.
