ISEB promotes the scholarly study of the lives of educators and those whose lives are educative. All analytical and interpretive approaches to biographies are encouraged as well as the exchange of ideas among scholars of education and those from other disciplines who have an interest in the field of education through the common bond of the educational biography. By "biography” we include traditional biographical accounts as well as biographical methods which include the following: narrative, oral history, autobiography, ethnography, auto-ethnography, self-study.
