De-mystifying data analysis (rearranged from Nov 2019)
Organised by the Education, Childhood and Youth (ECY) Pathway
Feeling unsure about analysing your data? Three ‘hands-on’ workshops will encourage you to ‘have a go’ at questionnaire, visual images and Q-methodology approaches to data analysis, under guidance. Experts will introduce you to advanced procedures to help you to:
- build your skill-set and confidence
- select the most appropriate analytical approach
- develop critical capacity when reviewing studies and
- look forward with joy and excitement to analysing your own data!
Please note that there are currently 7 places available for the face-to-face workshop (25 spaces in total), and 18 places available on the webinar (25 spaces in total). Once places are full, if you wish to be added to the waiting list for this training in the event of cancellations, please contact Louise Todd via firstname.lastname@example.org
Course and Workshop Leaders
'My research interest is curriculum studies, education policy and globalisation and most of my teaching focuses on these areas. I teach across the different levels of the School programme portfolio, including a module called ‘Critical Curriculum Studies’ (BA Education, Culture and Childhood first year); ‘Internationalising Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment’ on the full-time MA Globalising Education programme to EdD and PhD programmes. I research the language of curriculum texts (policies, textbooks, lesson plans, classroom resources and students´ work) how it is interpreted and enacted in educational institutions. I investigate and how educational ideas may be rethought, revitalised and enacted in a fair way. I am interested in the nature of knowledge, how it is produced, transformed and promoted through school subjects; the relationships between curriculum policies and curriculum practices and how curriculum influences the identity of students, parents/carers and teachers.'
She is currently co-editing a book for Multilingual Matters ‘Translanguaging as transformation: The collaborative construction of new linguistic realities’ which will be published in 2020. She co-convenes the AILA Research Network for Creative Inquiry and Applied Linguistics.
