Informing Education Research and the Praxis of Leadership through the use of Autoethnography and Phenomenology
Keywords:Educational leadership, autoethnography, phenomenology, education
AbstractFor the purpose of this paper, I outline how phenomenology and autoethnography can be used to inform educational research and the praxis and educational leadership. I orient the reader by establishing the parameters for what is intended here in the use of the terms educational research and the praxis of educational leadership. Additionally, I offer explanations of both autoethnography and phenomenology, their value in educational research and specifically, their value in studying educational leadership.
