1. Allan, Janet K. Learning to think, thinking to learn : dispositions, identity and communities of practice : a comparative study of six N.Z. farmers as practitioners.

Degree: Master of Teaching and Learning, Education, 2002, University of Canterbury

The aim of this research is to explore the question of how farmers learn, in constructing knowledge both in and for practice. It seeks to identify how they gain new ideas, make changes, develop to a level of expertise and who and what contribute to this process. The rapidity of change in a high tech environment, combined with globalisation, the new economy and the knowledge age, means that farmers are living their lives in 'fast forward' mode. There is so much new technology, research and development available that the ability to identify information relevant to a particular farming practice and to process it to knowledge is an increasing challenge. Six central South Island (N.Z.) farmers were selected purposively as case studies. The range of case profiles provides for comparison and contrast of the relative importance of formal qualifications, differences between sheep/beef farmers and dairy farmers, levels of expertise, age and experiences. The self-rating of the farmers enables a comparison of lower and higher performers, identifying characteristics which enable insight into why some farmers consistently lead new practice and why others are reluctant followers. The research is qualitative in design and approached from a constructlVIst and interpretive paradigm. Socially and experientially based, it seeks to understand the experiences of the subjects through in-depth interviews and observations. This study identifies farmers as social learners although working independently, in relative geographical isolation and often, social isolation. It concludes that these farmers learn through participation in the practice of farming. This practice includes a constellation of cOmInunities of practice, which may be resource-rich or resource-poor, depending on the range and depth of the farmer's involvement. Through full and committed participation in these practice communities and associate constellations, the practitioner's identity evolves, encouraging new practices, ideas and innovation. This study emphasises that expertise is not a permanent state but requires evolving identity, knowledge and dispositional ability; for maintenance and growth within a culture of practice. Emergent grounded theory suggests that dispositional knowledge underpins construction and use of all knowledge; that construction and use of high-order propositional and procedural knowledge requires higher-order dispositional knowledge and that mastery is developed through evolving identity, dispositions, leadership and learning, socioculturally constructed through resource-rich constellations of communities of practice.

Subjects/Keywords: dispositions; commumtles of practice; identity; novice; mastery; propositional; procedural; knowledge; knowing in practice; grounded theory; farmers; learning; sociocultural.

2. Newville, Sandra. Intersection of Art and Emancipation: The Road to Rebellious Subjectivity.

Degree: EdD, Adult and Community College Education, 2007, North Carolina State University

This study describes the framework that artists use to create works of art that foster emancipatory responses in viewers. Then it relates that framework to adult educators creating emancipatory learning experiences for their students. It uses phenomenological methods, involving participants as co-researchers in in-depth interviews, prolonged engagement and frequent member checks, to explore the artists' direct experience with the phenomenon. The conceptual framework for this study is found in John Dewey's (1934) Art and Experience with his definition of experience as the interaction of the self and the world, and Herbert Marcuse's (1978) Aesthetic Dimension and his concept of rebellious subjectivity. The theoretical framework rests on critical adult education theory, specifically, critical pragmatism. The study analyzes the philosophical framework, practice, and process of six artists whose paintings promoted an emancipatory response in the researcher. Three themes emerged as significant: 1) thinking and painting; 2) knowing yourself; and 3) trusting the process. "Thinking and painting" describes the complexity of artistic thinking. It involves the dynamics of feeling, seeing beyond the surface and thinking in a way that is open-ended, open to possibilities rather than being pre-planned. "Knowing yourself" is where emancipation happens. It involves knowing why we feel the way we do, the need to keep evolving and growing, being true to the heart and desire to be original, to create something new. "Trusting the process" explores imaginative power. It involves having intentions but not outlining outcomes, problem-solving in context of the whole, and staying spontaneous, allowing things to happen. The study relates the artists' themes to adult educators in an analysis of the connections between art and emancipation, consideration of emancipatory values, learning how to act from what we feel, and how to use the artists' process in our own experiences. It adds to an understanding in the discourse of why and how art is emancipatory and lays a foundation for further research in educators' self reflection, applications to emancipatory practice, methodology, curriculum, evaluation and the development of new ways of teaching and learning.
