Course content

The focus of this one day development session is to support academics in planning, undertaking and critiquing pedagogical research alongside their existing discipline research and scholarship. Participants will receive electronic copies of a range of resources and materials and will be invited to form a peer-community online after the workshop, to form an ongoing forum for support and learning around pedagogic research.

The workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Understanding pedagogic research and its place in higher education teaching and learning;
  • The range of pedagogic research methods;
  • Issues in designing pedagogic research;
  • The ethics of pedagogic research with your own students;
  • Assessing and critiquing existing pedagogic research. 

 

 

The workshop is split between interactive sessions, case studies of pedagogic research and its impact, and opportunities to work in small, supportive groups designing future pedagogic research projects.
