Learning Enhancement & Academic Development Service
Date: Tuesday 03 December 2019
Time: 12:00 - 14:00
Venue: Teaching Room, Southpark House
Category: Academic events
Speaker: Dr Nathalie Sheridan

Ethnography is a method of investigation that looks at the situation (in this case, the teaching scenario) from the point of view of the culture and behaviour of the subjects being studied. This session will explore what ethnography is, how it works as a research approach in an educational context, what methods are related to ethnography, and some of the principles of ethnographic research. The session also introduces case studies as a methodology and explores their purpose within research and scholarship in higher education.

You should come if: you're looking for new ways of engaging with educational scholarship around your own teaching.

This session is open to staff of the University of Glasgow. Graduate Teaching Assistants are welcome to register for the purpose of developing their own teaching practice, but please note that these sessions are not suitable for any students seeking training for their own PhD research projects. Contact your School for information on the research methods training available to you as a student. For the avoidance of doubt as to eligibility, it would be helpful if you could please register using your staff email address.
