Four Pre -Conference Workshops: 11th July 2018
- The Benefits and Challenges of Undertaking Interventionist Research: Are you up for it?
- Innovation and Experimentation in Researching, Teaching, and Learning Research Methodology: Tools, Technologies and Best Practices
- Participatory Action Research: to evaluate and develop a model for supporting continuous improvement and change within the Higher Education Sector
- How to Publish and to Review Papers with High Quality
10:00 - 11:30
The aim of the workshop is to discuss the practical aspects, including the benefits, challenges and approaches, of undertaking Interventionist Research (IVR) to solve organisational problems. The workshop intends to delineate a logical, iterative approach inclusive of theory and practice to undertaking IVR. Moreover, we explore issues such as gaining access to participants, participant retention, interventionist researcher qualities required to undertake IVR, research methods to apply in IVR, intervention design and implementation, and publishing your interventionist research paper. We also invite attendees to share their experiences of IVR in this workshop.
Innovation and Experimentation in Researching, Teaching, and Learning Research Methodology: Tools, Technologies and Best Practices
Led by Ben K. Daniel, University of Otago, New Zealand
This workshop will bring together educational researchers and those who involved in researching and teaching research methodologies in academia and the business; to share experiences and best practice models; and demonstrate how they currently experiment and innovate with various tools, technologies and approaches in researching and teaching research methodologies. Participants will present research papers, and programs; engage in interactive discussions, share experiences, address challenges, and identify opportunities associated with experimentation and innovation with pedagogy of research methodology.
13:30 – 15:30
Participatory Action Research: to evaluate and develop a model for supporting continuous improvement and change within the Higher Education Sector
Action Research methods seek to define a problem and, through a process of discovery, seek to identify and then evaluate potential solutions (Kitchen & Stevens, 2008).
The workshop has been designed by as part of a methodological framework supporting the identification of constraints and enablers of improvement within a higher education context. The workshop will enable a rapid appraisal approach to participatory action research, linking together practice (System and Design Thinking) and the research methodology (Participatory Action Research).
13:30 – 16:00
This workshop will provide participants with an overview of some of the techniques that are helpful when writing a scientific paper. In addition, using objective examples and dynamic methodologies, participants will learn how to produce a competent review that will be useful and will help authors achieve high quality articles.
