Learning Agency: The Interactional Negotiation of Difference and Identity in Group Work.

Waldron, Rupert (2013) Learning Agency: The Interactional Negotiation of Difference and Identity in Group Work. The International Academic Forum’s European Conference on Education Conference Proceedings, 2013. pp. 1-12. ISSN 2188-1162

The paper draws on mediative research analysing interaction between home, European and international students in a London university through observations, interviews, and workshops. It argues for an integrative approach to mediative research into student interaction combining insights from interactional discourse approaches with consideration of world-system and postcolonial contexts as they articulate with subject area – here fashion – as a means to transformative intervention. Internationalisation for home students is seen to mean moving from Eurocentric to inter-/transnational frames of reference but also interactional styles, and for institutions, to include developing the outlook, practices and curricula to mediate that.
