Pre-Conference Workshop Higher Education Research and Development Society of Australasia 2015

Workshop 4 - "Critical discourse analysis and close reading of texts: Powerful methodologies for analysing HE data" (#6)

Barbara M. Grant 1
  1. The University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand

This workshop, led by Barbara Grant (Executive Editor of HERD) and other members of HERD's editorial team, will explore critical discourse analysis and close reading of texts as ways to analyse and interpret qualitative data in higher education research beyond a simply descriptive mode. The workshop will include input about these approaches to data, along with some practice exercises and discussion.

The data analysis processes explored in the workshop will be useful for dealing with the challenges of making sense of qualitative data in higher education research. They will also be helpful for producing analyses/interpretations of data that are sensitive to the uncertainty and complexity characteristic of knowledge about education.

Please note this workshop is supported by HERDSA and is FREE for full HERDSA delegates to attend.

- REGISTRATION CLOSED. No more places available for this workshop
