My name is Jeffrey Keefer, and I blog as an opportunity to reflect on my own practice–personal, professional, and academic. I am interested in issues around social and networked learning, doctoral education and researcher development, threshold concepts in higher education, liminality in learning experiences, actor-network theory, organizational and personal power and positionality, theoretical and paradigmatic frameworks and models, critical and constructivist theory, and identity. To this end I advocate qualitative research, especially autoethnography, narrative inquiry, and liveblogging as opportunities to make sense of phenomena and experiences.

My blogging is often (seemingly) separate from my professional work (as a project manager, research methods professor, and organizational consultant), so more about me can be found on my website JeffreyKeefer.com.
