Learning, inside and outside schools, happens in the interaction between children and their teachers, parents, and peers. It takes human interaction to learn to talk, to do math, to collaborate and to learn autonomously. Research on educational interactions has grown tremendously in the past decade. It reveals important insights for educational improvement.
Building on a unique combination of different disciplinary perspectives, this summer school will appeal to students and early career researchers with an interest, and potentially data, in interaction and learning; it will also welcome applicants without any previous training in the subject, who are interested in exploring classroom interaction as a subject for the continuation of their academic career.
During the Analyzing Classroom Interactions programme at the University of Groningen, you will have a chance to attend and take active part in lectures and workshops from leading experts.
Techniques that will be addressed range from gathering and coding interactional data, to analyzing this data using qualitative and quantitative methods, such as content analysis, conversation analysis and statistical discourse analysis. Bringing in your own data for analysis and discussion is highly encouraged.
Learning outcomesAfter this course you will be able to:
- describe the theoretical underpinnings of micro-analytic research on classroom interactions
- formulate your own research questions
- set up a design for research on classroom interactions
- analyze data on classroom interactions using state-of-the-art techniques
