(Course over)

Course leaders

  • Assoc. prof. Oskar Lindwall, University of Gothenburg

Course description

Today, the number of researchers within the field of education that are
taking an interest in making detailed studies of interaction are on the
rise. In relation to this, there is a growing body of video based studies
of social interaction in educational settings that build on analytical
concerns and assumptions from ethnomethodology and conversation analysis.

This course has a dual aim. First, to give an overview of some relevant
approaches to the study of interaction, instruction and learning. Second,
to provide insights and experiences of actual analytic work and discuss
practical issues of recording, transcription and analysis. The course is
aimed at PhD students who rely on the use of video in their research. The participants are expected to work with their own recordings, and having access to video material is therefore a requirement.

Please note that this course is 5 hec and does not have a second part.
