LCT is used to examine practices in terms of their organizing principles or ‘legitimation codes’. LCT concepts reveal the ‘rules of the game’ shaping different arenas of social life, such as education. Such bases of achievement are typically tacit, so by making the codes visible, LCT enables the rules of the game to be taught and learned or changed.
The founder of the theory Professor Karl Maton will introduce the theory, followed by presentations by two academics to explain how they are using this theory in Higher Education research.
