Fictive imagining and moral purpose: Autobiographical research as/for transformative development

Pererira, L. and Taylor, P.C.S. (2005) Fictive imagining and moral purpose: Autobiographical research as/for transformative development. In: Auto/Biography and Auto/Ethnography: Praxis of Research Method. Sense Publishers, pp. 47-72.

Abstract

In this chapter we focus on autobiographical inquiry as a transformative tool for professional educators: (a) to examine critically and creatively ways in which their own moral values impact their everyday choices and decisions, and (b) to develop a practical wisdom with which to make better professional choices and decisions. We are particularly interested in the unconventional use of fictive biographical inquiry for extending educators’ professional development beyond the horizon of their own lived experience to embrace the lived experience of colleagues.
