Item Type:Article
Additional Information:This paper makes a distinctive contribution to applied and practice-based research by considering ontology and values as features informing the development of mentoring practice in a University and Training School partnership. It highlights the use of video recordings of professional practice to facilitate learning through self-study of participants and shows how, through the development of a website, the learning was disseminated to the wider professional community. Developed from a paper given at the American Educational Research Association conference in 2004, this article also informed a further joint paper given at AERA in 2006. The work underpinning it contributed to workshop presentations to staff at the University of the Free State, Bloemfontein, in March 2006 and informed Whitehead's invited keynote address to the British Educational Research Association Practitioner Research SIG Conference at St Mary's College, July 2006. Whitehead was responsible for 60% of this publication.
