Professor Jack Whitehead
Professor Jack Whitehead is a former President of the British Educational Research Association and Distinguished Scholar in Residence at Westminster College, Utah. He is a Visiting Professor at Ningxia University in China. He is also a member of the editorial board of the Educational Journal of Living Theories (https://ejolts.net ). Since 1973 his research programme has focused on the creation of the living educational theories that individual's use to explain their educational influences in their own learning, in the learning of others and in the learning of the social formations in which we live and work.
His original contributions to educational knowledge have focused on enquiries of the kind, 'How do I improve what I am doing?' These contributions can be accessed from his web-site at http://www.actionresearch.net . In the multi-media Educational Journal of Living Theories (EJOLTS) he explains how video-data can be used to communicate the life-affirming energy and values of humanity that practitioner-researchers express, as explanatory principles, in their educational relationships and in their explanations of their educational influences (http://ejolts.net/node/80). He is a strong advocate for the use of living-posters (http://www.actionresearch.net/writings/posters/homepage020617.pdf ) in developing participatory research programmes.
Professor Paul Flowers
He has a long standing interest in methodological innovation and is particularly interested in how qualitative research methods can be used within applied health research.
He is also committed to using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) within applied research. He is proud to be co-author of the first book dedicated to Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (http://www.uk.sagepub.com/books/Book227528/reviews).
