Digging into Data, Sharing Research Findings
The institutional structures that frame and support educational research and our understanding of children and childhood are changing. This includes emerging political narratives about what counts as useful research and knowledge, and their relation with policy and wider society. The aim of ‘Digging into Data, Sharing Research Findings’ is to consider the needs and interests of children and young people as participants in education research. This includes children and young people as research participants and stakeholders in utilizing research outputs.
Symposium – Digging into Data: Theorizing children and childhood in education research methods
Dr Debbie Watson – University of Bristol
|13.00||Sharing Research Findings|
|Workshop 1 – Dr Debbie Watson
In this workshop I will offer participants a chance to try some of the methods used in the projects Life Chances and trove: storying through objects and character development for fictional writing using the Life Chances character cards. We will reflect on the ethical challenges involved in these methods and ways in which we need to work to keep children and young people emotionally safe and to understand issues relating to confidentiality and consent.
|Workshop 2 – Dr Katy Vigurs
Dr Katy Vigurs(University of Staffordshire) demonstrates how textual data can be transformed into graphic representations, thereby bringing greater emotional immediacy to research findings. Participants should bring an interview transcript or short research report to see how their data/findings could be interpreted visually.
