PhD Interactive Session:
The Interpretive Twist – A brief introduction to the “auto” in “mesearch”
In our current moment of history in educational research, many scholars engage in a wide range of what Richardson (2000) has termed Creative Analytical Practices (CAP); those practices can include ‘methods’ such as autoethnography, duoethnography, autobiography, poetic inquiry, arts-based inquiry, artography, performative ethnography, narrative, ethnodrama, a/r/tography and other creative approaches to inquiry (p. 929). Autoethnography, and storied approaches to research represented in this session, traces its lineage largely from ethnography, narrative theory, and other approaches to social science that were influenced by the “crisis of representation” and the “interpretive turn” in qualitative research (Denzin & Lincoln, 2011; Erickson, 2011; Richardson, 2000; Reyna, 2006; Sparkes, 2002).
This afternoon’s session will not only engage us in thinking and writing about interpretive forms of inquiry, but also creative tactics, strategies, and graphic organizers that make learning about these approaches a student-centered experience.
Peter Gouzouasis’ visit to the Lab
January 25 – 28th, 2016 we will welcome Professor Peter Gouzouasis to the lab from the University of British Columbia, (UBC). Over the past 25 years, Peter Gouzouasis’ work at UBC has evolved through three connective strands: (1) teaching and learning in music (including digital media and technologies), (2) developing an understanding of learning in and through the Arts and general curriculum using Arts Based Educational Research methods and digital technologies, and (3) relational, developmental perspectives on lifelong learning. These strands, or themes, have shaped Peter’s current scholarship as distinctive and innovative; expanding the methodological and pedagogical boundaries of arts related educational research and pedagogic practice.
