Narrative is an everyday social practice with important research implications. Narrative research captures the ways people and organizations make sense of the complex material and social environments in which their lives and experiences unfold.

In a time when big data, analytics, and evidence-based practices dominate educational policy and practice, narrative research offers an important alternative framework from which to approach what it means to know and learn. Narrative research approaches knowledge as always-situated in a given perspective; rather than claiming objectivity, narrative research investigates many given perspectives in depth, framing their intersections.
