EARLI: On shifting positions in DBR

I’m happy to announce, that I will be going to Finland on the EARLI (European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction) conference this year with a contribution to a roundtable discussion.  My colleagues Lea Tilde Rosenlund, Charlotte Wolff and I had our proposal accepted with the following comments:

This makes for an interesting round-table, being conscious of the possible influences of shifting roles and perspectives are of the utmost importance in DBR – any type of research for that matter. I think the discussion at this round-table will be fruitful.

The question of the (shifting) role of the researcher in Design-Base Research is an important and understudied question. The proposed round table could provide a welcome contribution to the discussion. The round table format fits the described purpose very well.

The topic for our roundtable discussion is on the shifting positions of the researcher within Design-Based Research. You can see our proposal here: EARLI submission round table 2017

Hope to see you there

Confrence on Practice-based research methods

On the 19th – 22th of september I’m traveling to the Netherlands together with the rest of the research group.

We are going to meet with colleagues from the Open University to discuss our research. On the 20th september the university facilitates a conference. The title of the conference is “Practice-based research methods”, and the different contributions will look at practice-based research methods from different perspectives. The main perspectives will be:

  • Situated knowledge, practice and networks
  • Practice-based research and valorisation
  • Networked learning
  • Significance of context
  • Designing practice-based research

The program can be found here

Concepts of transfer and transformation in designing for situated knowledge across contexts
In this session, I and my PhD Fellow Lea will introduce ”the transfer dilemma” and present a theoretical overview of transfer and transformation of knowledge in education as it can be seen over the last century including alternative perspectives and critical voices in the theoretical landscape of transfer in education. We will draw upon these views on transfer and transformation of situated knowledge to introduce our own  research and present our own empirical projects on designing for teaching and learning across contexts supported by digital technologies.

The twitter # for the conference is: #OU_OW.
