The six writers in this book explore the contribution and the transferability of narrative inquiry from
curriculum studies to daily life in education and in healthcare. They examine the interconnectivity of
reconstructed experience with the construction of disciplinary identity and knowledge. Thinking narratively,
they write auto/biographically about relationships between teachers, students, nurses, colleagues, and/or
people in their care. As narrative inquirers, they are curious how research moves forward professional
situations in education and healthcare.
The narrative plotlines of knowledge construction, curriculum building and identity formation thread through
the chapters. In education and healthcare, the reconstructed experience of a teacher is shown to be
foundational to curriculum content and processes. In nursing education, we see congruence between narrative
inquiry (Clandinin & Connelly, 1995, 2000; Connelly & Clandinin, 1988, 1999) as a process that includes the
teacher-researcher as co-participant; and, theorists, such as Watson (1999), include the nurse in the caring
situation as shapers of the experience of people in their care. As practitioner-researchers, teachers in education
and healthcare construct who they are and how they are in relationship in the context of social situations. Inquiry, not certainty (Dewey, 1929), is a life
stance that is formative for education.
Practitioners in education and in healthcare will be interested in this book as a way to make meaning of their experience. Policymakers and
administrators will be interested in this book as a way of conceptualizing teachers' knowledge as a source of curriculum. Researchers will be interested
in this book as a demonstration of how narrative inquiry illuminates ways of being that are educative and an innovative way to study curriculum.
