Since the last entry I have done quite a lot of text for IPEX and begun to get the hang of this. Maybe I did not see it before but there is now an option for adding a link so I don't have to try to remember how to put in html code.
There is another conference linked to the Management Learning Department at Lancaster. This summer it is at Cambridge 'Linking Learning and Critique'. My current critique could develop along the lines that UK academics seem not to be very interested in applied subject areas such as IT or quality.The UK trend in studies of management learning seems to be to understand fashions of 'rhetoric' rather than look for results. HoweverI should get a better understanding of how 'critical' ideas explain how learning happens. A conference next year will look at making the discussion around critical ideas more inclusive.
