Notes and actions from Denver (11/12) meeting.
The meeting covered a lot of ground – discussions were not always conclusive. Hence these notes comprise a combination of ACTIONS and PROPOSALS (the former are what we agreed to do, and the latter are what we need to agree to do – or not).
It was recognised that the 4 over-arching questions work well to define the project. These generate rich data, and the next step is to analyse data collected to date.
The interview protocols worked well – but some amendments could further improve them. ACTION – anyone who has used the protocol, please pass comments to Pam for further revision of protocol. Please do so by 15th December.
OBJECTIVE 1 – BELMAS Conference
BELMAS Conference (Edinburgh, 12-14 July 2013). It was agreed that the BELMAS proposal will take the form of a SYMPOSIUM in which pairs of presenters will provide a summary of data collection from Principal interviews. Each paper will explicitly make comparisons between the issues emerging from the two different national contexts in each pair.
Provisional paired groupings are:
Mika (Finland) and Meng (China)
Ian (England) and Charlie/Nancy (Costa Rica)
Heather (US) and Jayson (India)
Helene and Katarina (Sweden) and Pam (USA)
3 December 2012: Call for papers/ Registration opens
22 February 2013: Deadline for submission
15 March: Presenters informed
12 – 14 July: Conference
ACTION: Howard to coordinate proposal submission
Individual presenters to develop papers (subject to proposal being accepted)
OBJECTIVE 2 – UCEA Convention
It was agreed that we should seek a symposium session at UCEA 2013 and that this would be based on a further analysis of the Phase 1 data (Principal interviews) but supplemented by a more robust contextual statement for each case.
Each case to generate a contextual statement that describes the macro context (policy/political background) and the micro context (institutional issues). A framework relating to the contextual statement will follow (Howard to organise).
ACTION: Helene to co-ordinate submission of proposal to UCEA
If UCEA proposal successful then individual paper presenters will need to develop papers.
UCEA proposal deadline – early May.
We discussed the ECER Conference (Istanbul, September 2013). We do not meet again before the deadline for submissions, and it may be we have enough to do. I am suggesting that rather than organise a group submission that we leave this to individuals – it may be that individual group members want to use the data for a presentation at ECER, or perhaps some people working together. At this stage we leave this issue for individuals to decide. ECER deadlines are:
|02.04.2013||Review results sent out|
|10.09.2013||ECER Main Conference|
We will also aim to have an informal Network meeting at ECER if several members are there. A presence at ECER in 2014 (London) was considered a sensible target to aim for.
To develop a literature review relating to conceptions of Social Justice. ACTION – Howard to co-ordinate, and invite others to be involved (Philip Woods for example).
We received an invitation from one of the editors of the Journal of Research on Leadership Education to submit a proposal for a special issue. It was agreed that Bruce and Howard [ACTION] would liaise and submit a proposal to the editors for a 2014 publication. This would probably go across the two groups.
