Transitioning into pedagogical research – ‘Dual identities and discipline spanning’

Thursday, 17 May 2018

Abstract:

This workshop will focus on pedagogic research and the role of the pedagogic researcher in higher education. The focus is to support those transitioning into pedagogical research from another discipline. It will explore the interrelationship between learning, teaching and research at a time when there is increasing emphasis on multidisciplinary research across the HE sector. It will consider the dual relationship between discipline-centred research and pedagogic research areas and the transitioning between these, with a focus on research methodologies and publication. Action research will be used as a named example. Taking an interactive approach, this workshop will be an opportunity to share knowledge, experiences and develop strategies and networks between participants.


By the end of this workshop, successful participants will be able to:

1. Discuss the opportunities for developing as a dual-researcher and the position of a pedagogical researcher within the HE environment;
2. Critically evaluate the similarities and differences between research areas and how to manage and transition between these;
3. Exploring research methodologies and paradigms, aligned to pedagogical research and develop a critical understanding of how these may differ to one’s own current practice;
4. Evaluate the role of ‘action research’ in Higher Education and how this can be used as a transitional mechanism into pedagogical research;
5. Develop a strategy, and networks, to support the successful transition into research into educational research in Higher Education;
