Webinar: Undertaking a Literature Review

Monday, 27 April 2020

This session is about carrying out a literature review. We will cover what a literature review is and what purposes a literature review serves. We will look at examples of different types of literature review and the epistemological assumptions that lie behind them. We discuss the reporting of a literature review, contrasting narrative with other  approaches, and ask what is the difference between a literature review and a conceptual and / or theoretical  framework. We will discuss examples of literature review and you will be asked to reflect on the role that literature reviews plays in your own research. The session will be part talk and part group work.
Facilitator: Dr Michael Hammond: University of Warwick, Centre for Education Studies 

11.00 - 11.30 Presentation: What is a literature review? What types of literature are there? What types of review are there?

11.30 - 11.45 Small group work: compare and contrast the literature reviews you are undertaking OR describe a review you have read and found useful: what worked well for you?

12.00– 12.30 Broadening the notion of a literature review: what is a conceptual framework, a theoretical framework? An interpretive review? Why collecting data before a literature review can sometimes be a good idea?
