|Title:||The presence, meaning and power of the term 'best practice' on international school websites: An exploratory paper||Contributor(s):||Hardy, Joy (author); Kupczyk-Romanczuk, Glenda (author)||Publication Date:||2005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/4696||Abstract:||This paper maps and analyses the presence, meaning and power of the term 'best practice' on international school websites. It is argued that the term 'best practice' has a low profile. Further, semantic analysis is used to argue that expressions generated from the term 'best practice' are problematic, which casts the efficacy of the term into doubt. The efficacy of the term is also problematised by critical discourse analysis, which is applied to the statements containing the term 'best practice'. This analysis is used to argue that the meaning of the term 'best practice' is ambivalent and that the power of the term is debatable.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Details:||ANZCIES 2005: 33rd Annual Australian and New Zealand Comparative and International Education Society Conference, Coffs Harbour, Australia, 2nd - 4 December, 2005||Source of Publication:||Questioning 'Best Practise' In Education: Benefits And Disadvantages, Debates and Dilemmas: Proceedings of the 33rd Annual Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Comparative and International Education Society||Publisher:||University of New England||Place of Publication:||Armidale, Australia||Fields of Research (FoR) 2008:||130306 Educational Technology and Computing||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO) 2008:||939999 Education and Training not elsewhere classified||HERDC Category Description:||E2 Non-Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Publisher/associated links:||http://www.anzcies.org/about.php#conference_history
