An interactive and discussion based seminar with invited speakers: Mary Dixon-Woods, Harry Torrance, Lesley Saunders, Liz Spencer, Martyn Hammersley
The aim of this seminar is to create a venue where researchers can engage critically with a range of different approaches to evidence-based and systematic review methods and methodologies (e.g. meta-analysis, Bayesian meta-analysis, realist synthesis, meta-ethnography) that have currency for educational research and policy development. Through exploring their congruencies and disparities with the interests, theoretical concerns and practice of qualitative research in teaching and learning, qualitative researchers will have the opportunity to appraise their use and consider the ethics of applying for and undertaking funded research in these areas.
The seminar is of relevance to researchers who engage in qualitative approaches to teaching and learning research and are interested in finding ways to situate their work in relation to current beliefs about the relationships between research, policy and practice.
