Phenomenography: an approach to analysing interview data in higher education.

Thursday, 11 May 2017

 

Phenomenographic research is focused on examining variation in the ways in which students or academics experience particular aspects of higher education. In this workshop,you will be briefly introduced to the theory and processes that inform phenomenography. You will then have the opportunity to work in groups to undertake your own phenomenographic analysis. Finally, participants will discuss  the possibilities and problems that are faced by those wishing to undertake phenomenographic research in higher education.

 

Professor Alison Shreeve

Until May 2015 Alison was the Head of School for Art and Design at Bucks New University and is now retired (end of May 2015) from full time employment. Her serious research career began with a joint project with colleagues mentored by Keith Trigwell which explored approaches to learning in fashion and textiles students using a phenomenographic methodology. Since then she has undertaken a number of research projects using a variety of analytical approaches and mentored others in Pedagogic Research. Her PhD examined variation in tutors’ experience of practice and teaching relations using a phenomenographic analysis which was followed by using an Activity Theory perspective. She has published in international journals, contributed to several books and is Associate Editor of the journal Art, Design and Communication in Higher Education.
