Title of doctoral thesis:
The heuristic significance of enacted visualisation
The project seeks to establish a research framework for investigating the embodied processes that either assist or hinder pupils? abilities to visualise figural cues in multiple ways within the context of pattern generalisation. The framework is centred around a novel combination of theoretical ideas: enactivism, figural apprehension, and the theoretical construct of knowledge objectification. This project seeks ultimately to provide practical strategies which support and encourage a multiple representational approach to pattern generalisation in the pedagogical context of the classroom.
