'Framing my name: extending educational boundaries' addresses issues of name and the naming process and its impact on higher education pedagogy. In bringing together the perspectives of the authors, the book shows how students' names are an agency of their learning. The manner in which names are articulated impacts on how students relate to learning. The process of naming involves an ontology that is related to students' histories, their culture, their place and position within a social matrix of group and community. For educators, this means undergoing a scaffolding process of learning the background to names and naming processes and then applying this knowledge to an understanding of students.
