Event Description

Full Description:
Teaching research methods in higher education has long been associated with a number of challenges for both learners and educators. From the learners’ point of view these can stem from perceptions that content is dry, irrelevant or too complex. For educators, challenges can arise from a lack of pedagogical knowledge to enhance learner engagement. Researchers (across methodological and disciplinary boundaries) widely agree that learners need to be engaged in ‘hands on’ research practices, and that active, authentic and reflexive learning provides affordances for this (Lewthwaite and Nind, 2016; Kilburn et al, 2014; Earley, 2014).

Fung (2017) recommends a ‘through line’ of enquiry built into the programme of study to help students build confidence and abilities in research, make conceptual connections and develop a narrative of their learning journey. Researchers also agree on the need to nurture a ‘pedagogic culture’ (Wagner, 2011) to support educators through opportunities to share teaching practice, air challenges and exchange ideas.

The aim of this panel session is to move toward a pedagogic culture of teaching research methods by inviting insights from educators and learners.
