Video-based studies of instruction and work in medicine

May 18-20th 2011
Organized by NAIL and the LETStudio, University of Gothenburg

http://www.ufn.gu.se/english/research/learning_a_priority_research_area/letstudio/studio_1/

This workshop brings together scholars that share an interest in detailed analyses of work and instruction in medicine. The workshop is organized around two interrelated themes. The first theme concerns how central parts of medical training are conducted in and through medical practice. One cannot learn how to perform the procedures of endodontics or laparoscopy just by studying textbooks or listening to lectures. At the same time, novices cannot just start practice on real patients right away without seriously endanger the quality of the care. Consequently, there are needs for educational arrangements where experts demonstrate procedures and where students are able to perform them under guidance and supervision of teachers and professionals. The second theme focuses on the use of video in medicine. Since the mid-20th century, 'television' has been used for teaching surgery - both through live telecasts and in the form of edited instructional films. However, the use of video is not restricted to educational situations. In laparoscopy, for instance, surgeons operate on patients by viewing monitors showing images produced by an endoscopic camera; thus, the "video recording, the quality of the image, the chosen perspectives, the zooming movements etc. comprise a constitutive dimension of the surgical work.” (Mondada, 2003, p. 59)

Analysis of interaction and learning

Oslo, November 20-21, 2007

Professor Sten Ludvigsen, InterMedia, University of Oslo – Norway
Professor Berner Lindström, IT University, University of Gothenburg - Sweden
Professor Roger Säljö, University of Gothenburg - Sweden

Aims and thematic focus

The workshop will be the fourth in a row where the first workshop was held in Gothenburg December 2005, the second in Gothenburg 2006 and the third in Villars January 2007. The coming workshop will both aim at pursuing the ongoing work of participating PhD-students as well as incorporating the work of new participants.

Researchers within the learning sciences have expressed a growing interest in detailed analyses of instructional practices. This interest could partly be explained by the widespread access to cheap recording technologies such as digital camcorders. Equally important are the theoretical, analytical and methodological arguments concerning the contextualized and situated nature of learning and the associated emphasis on studies in naturalistic settings. These arguments raise a number of questions in relation to the analysis of such practices:

  • How does one transform recordings of interaction into analytic accounts?
  • What is the relation between studies of interaction and theories of learning?
  • How does one make analyses relevant for curricular and technological design?


One aim with the workshop is to address and explore these three questions. Provided the contextualized and situated nature of learning, however, answers to these questions need to be adapted to local circumstances and project specific purposes. Therefore, the primary aim of the workshop is to share and discuss video data and results of analysis through a series of data sessions and seminars. Thus, general issues are addressed through particular projects and studies. As a complement to the data sessions, there will be a small number of invited presentations.

Target groups and number of expected students

The workshop is primarily aimed at PhD-students within the Kaleidoscope network whose research projects include video- or audio-recorded data. Due to the interactive nature of the workshop the number of participants will be limited to 20 students. Participants will be selected on the basis of the relevance of their research projects to the central themes of the workshop, and in what way they can be expected to benefit and/or contribute to the workshop.

Format

The workshop will have two types of activities: The main activity will be the participant presentations, but in addition there will be lecture sessions where the organising senior researchers introduce and sum up relevant theoretical and methodological perspectives.

Presenters are expected to bring video data for collaborative analysis and discussion as part of their presentations. The participant presentation involves a short presentation of the students’ case and extracts of their data material. The presentation will be followed by a 40 minutes session of discussion. For every session there will be main discussants that introduce the general discussion. The main language of the workshop will be English. The participants will submit an abstract of their research project, as well as descriptions of the video material, in advance.

Organising committee

The workshop will be organised by the Network of Analysis and Learning (NAIL). The main purpose of the network is to collaboratively perform detailed analyses of social interaction by regularly organising data sessions, workshops and seminars. The focus is on rigorous analytic work, mostly in the spirit of ethnomethodology and conversation analysis. NAIL is a central part of The Linnaeus Centre for Research on Learning, Interaction, and Mediated Communication in Contemporary Society (LinCS) at University of Gothenburg and IT-university in Gothenburg. LinCS is a national centre of excellence for research on learning, interaction and mediated communication supported by the Research Council. A unifying feature of the LinCS research agenda is an interest in empirical research, conducted from a sociocultural perspectives, with a focus on the social organization of learning and changes in technologies and media for learning. Both NAIL and LinCS has a well established relation with InterMedia in Oslo, which is an interdisciplinary research centre which investigates the intersections between design, communication and learning in digital environments.

Organising committee and associated people are:
Professor Sten Ludvigsen, InterMedia, University of Oslo.
Professor Berner Lindström, University of Gothenburg, IT University
Professor Roger Säljö, University of Gothenburg
Patrik Lilja, IT University
Oskar Lindwall, University of Gothenburg, IT University
Anniken Furberg, InterMedia, University of Oslo

Call for papers and video presentations

The focus of the workshop will be on work-in-progress. In line with this, three types of contributions are called for: a) presentations
of working papers and the video data used, b) pure data sessions, and c) a few papers that deal with methodological themes.

In the first two cases, presenters will be expected to bring video
data for collaborative analysis and discussion as part of their
presentations. Due to the detailed types of analyses that are the
theme of this workshop, it is necessary to keep video clips to a
maximum of 2-3 minutes.

Please note that this is a workshop, and that the sessions are not regular paper-presentations. The time for introductory presentation of papers or data will be 5 minutes, followed by about forty minutes of discussion. It is thus necessary for participants to read and view  transcriptions before the workshop. For every session there will be two main discussants who introduce the general discussion.

Abstracts of working papers, as well as descriptions of video
material you wish to present, are to be sent to the organisers by
deadline September 20th. Upon acceptance, working papers and
transcripts of the corresponding video clips, alternatively (if no
paper is to be presented) only transcripts are to be sent to
organisers by the second deadline October 20th. This material will then be made available to participants before the workshop.

Transcriptions are (minimally) to contain speech and explanations of references to events not visible or otherwise incomprehensible to the. The main language of the workshop will be English, but it will also be possible to present video data in other languages, provided that there are transcripts both in the particular language and English translations.

Due to the nature of the workshop, which is intended to involve
intense group discussions, no more than about 25 participants will be accepted. Participants will be selected on the basis of the relevance of their research projects to the central themes of the workshop, and in what way they can be expected to benefit and/or contribute to the workshop.

Interaction analysis in CSCL 7

January 25th-26th, 2007

Context

One important issue in CSCL is to understand social interaction mediated by computer-based artefacts. In this workshop we will explore this phenomenon from a qualitative perspective -interaction/discourse analysis. This workshop is part of the "CSCL Alpine Rendez-Vous", a set of independent workshops organized at the same time in the same hotel. This workshop is a continuation of initiatives in Kaleidoscope NOE (CSCL and the VDS and in a number of labs in KAL). The purpose of this workshop is to provide opportunities for researchers who do video-analytic research on social practices to enhance their competencies to analyze and understand how students/people communicate, reason, learn and construct knowledge.

Time in the workshop is divided between critically examining examples of completed analyses and jointly exploring new, previously un-analyzed materials. From the beginning, there has been a strong tradition of understanding social practice in CSCL. Activities of collaborative learning are of particularly interest. The goal of the workshop is to enhance methodology and build communities for interaction analysis research in CSCL and possibly in education generally.

Format

The workshop schedule will consist of a small number of invited presentations and data sessions. The invited presentations will be delivered by established scholars in the field of CSCL. Each will be asked to present an example of their best analytic work for discussion and critique We will also discuss methodological and theoretical issues based on the analyzes of data.

Proposals will be solicited for data sources to be presented in the data sessions. We will select different types of data where the artefacts are used (video, chat-logs, etc). Researchers submitting data will be presumed to have experience with video collection in the field, but may be relatively new to analyzing social practice. Each data session will focus on a brief (usually 2-3 min) selected fragment of recorded interaction. A substantial time-slot will be allowed for each data session and the sessions will be audio-recorded to increase their usefulness for the presenter.

Participants

Senior researchers and doctoral students/candidates and invited experts. The number of participants will be a maximum of 25.

Location

The workshop will occur in Switzerland, in Villars (www.villars.ch), a ski resort located 90 km from Geneva airport. It can easily be reached by train. In addition, a bus shuttle will be organized from Geneva Airport on Sunday 21st afternoon and Tuesday 23rd afternoon. The city of Lausanne has excellent train connections with Paris, Lyon, Torino or Germany. The Geneva airport (www.gva.ch) has many worldwide connections including several low-cost companies operating over Europe.

Expenses

The cost for workshop participation will be around 300 Euros (the funding scheme is not finalized), including hotel and food. The organizer will apply for funding for the workshop through Kaleidoscope.

Organizers

Prof. Berner Lindström, University of Gothenburg, Sweden; Prof. Sten Ludvigsen, University of Oslo, Norway; Prof. Gerry Stahl, Drexel University, USA; and other invited speaker.

CSCL SIG workshop: Analysis of interaction and learning

December, 14-16, 2005, Gothenburg, Sweden

In this workshop, researchers and PhD students that share an interest for interaction in computer supported learning environments, will meet in order to collaboratively perform detailed analyses of social interaction. The primary aim is to share and discuss video data and results of analysis through a series of data sessions and seminars. Participants in the workshop will benefit both through the uncovering of new facets of their own data and through opportunities to sharpen analytical skills. A central activity during the workshop will be the collaborative analytic work involving participants with different levels of experience and academic positions.

The main form of the meeting will be data-sessions where work-in-progress can be explored. Although the principal aim of the workshop is to provide opportunities to do analytic work with empirical data, a second aim, closely intertwined with the first, is to discuss and elaborate three important issues. These issues will be treated in more principled ways as well as in relation to specific studies.

1. How does one transform recordings of interaction into analytic accounts?

Within the field of CSCL, there are a number of approaches that make detailed studies of practice and students’ interaction. The ambition of the workshop is gathering people that primarily do not use pre-defined coding schemes in order to make sense of interaction. The use of coding schemes might well produce interesting results. Some phenomena of vital importance to CSCL research, however, such as how the subject matter content and the concrete conditions of particular learning environments are interactively managed, are of a different order and hence not analysable in terms of general coding schemes. The choice of not using such schemes raises a number of questions about the transformation of seemingly messy interaction into analytic accounts of this interaction.

2. What is the relation between studies of interaction and theories of learning?

Many people that start to analyse interaction in educational contexts have a disciplinary background in educational research. It is not easy, however, to sort out the relation between analyses of interaction in computer supported learning environments and educational theories. On the one hand, there are theories of learning that offer descriptions of learning in terms of various phenomena, as for instance: learning as transfer, learning as changed participation in communities of practice or learning as the appropriation of tools. Even though formulations such as these may have a major influence on educational theory and practice, it is not easy to put such general metaphors to analytical use. On the other hand, there are theories of instruction, formulations of how particular learning environments and activities should be structured in order for learning to occur. When using such formulations in the analysis of video data, however, one runs the risk of loosing what the participants are doing as a phenomenon in its own right. What the students are doing might very well be educationally relevant, although our current theories of instruction do not prescribe their actions as such.

3. How does one make the analyses relevant for curricular design?

In a plenary discussion, summarizing the CSCL 2005 meeting in Taipei, Tim Koschmann identified three important groups, or competencies, within the CSCL community: those who design and construct technology, those who incorporate and put technology to use in various learning contexts and, finally, those who study the use of technology in learning environments. This situation calls for innovative ways of planning research and reporting our results. The third issue that will be discussed thus concerns the relation between these groups: how can one communicate results from studies of interaction to people involved in technological and curricular design? Moreover, in what way can one perform investigations that are useable in the development of learning environments and how can the development and assessment of educational settings inform our research?

Call for papers and video presentations

The focus of the meeting will be on work-in-progress. In line with this, three types of contributions are called for: a) presentations of working papers and the video data used, b) pure data sessions, and c) a few papers that deals with one or several of the themes in a more principled way.

In the first two cases, presenters will be expected to bring video data for collaborative analysis and discussion as part of their presentations. Due to the detailed types of analyses that are the theme of this workshop, it is necessary to keep video clips to a maximum of 2-3 minutes.

Please note that this is a workshop, and that the sessions are not regular paper-presentations (except for keynote-sessions). The time for introductory presentation of papers or data will be 5 minutes, followed by about forty minutes of discussion. It is thus necessary for participants to read and view transcriptions before the workshop. For every session there will be main discussants who introduce the general discussion.

Abstracts of working papers, as well as descriptions of video material you wish to present, are to be sent to the organisers by deadline October 15th. Upon acceptance, working papers and transcripts of the corresponding video clips, alternatively (if no paper is to be presented) only transcripts are to be sent to organisers by the second deadline December 1st. This material will then be made available to participants before the workshop.

Transcriptions are (minimally) to contain speech and explanations of references to events not visible or otherwise incomprehensible to the . The main language of the workshop will be English, but it will also be possible to present video data in other languages, provided that there are transcripts both in the particular language and English translations.

Due to the nature of the workshop, which is intended to involve intense group discussions, no more than about 30 participants will be accepted. Participants will be selected on the basis of the relevance of their research projects to the central themes of the workshop, and in what way they can be expected to benefit and/or contribute to the workshop.

Publication

Since the workshop is process-oriented in nature, there are no fixed plans for publication yet. During the workshop, however, the possibilities of editing the most important contributions for joint publication will be investigated.

Location

The workshop will be held in Gothenburg, Sweden. There are possibilities for partial funding of travels and hotel costs. More information on hotels and funding is coming.
Abstracts and/or descriptions of data are to be sent by mail to the organisers by deadline November 11th to: Patrik Lilja

Organisers

The workshop is supported by Kaleidoscope and will be organised by Nail, the Network for Analysis of Interaction and Learning, which for several years has specialised in the collaborative analysis of video.
