Event description

Description

CEEHE is facilitating methodology workshops.

Wednesday 13 September
Methodology, reflexivity & ethics
9:30-11:30am
SAS207
This participatory workshop will dig into the interconnected concepts of methodology and reflexivity in the context of ethics. We will unpack further what we mean by praxis – how it works in practice, what insights it offers – and discuss what it means to ‘do’ reflexivity and be reflexive in our work (practice-research-praxis) with equity. We will ground these concepts/ practices in discussion of ethics – asking questions of consent, engagement, and power dynamics – in relation to equity work.

Wednesday 11 October
Applying Critical Theory for Analysis
9:30-11:30am
SAS207
This participatory workshop will work towards developing deeper understandings of the different critical social theories that offer a conceptual lens to frame and inform the design of and approaches to equity research. Drawing on the extensive experience of Professor Penny-Jane Burke, Professor Geoff Whitty and Professor Andrew Brown, this workshop will present examples of how critical theory has been used to analyse education policy and empirical data to develop rich understandings of how issues of equity play out in educational contexts. This workshop will offer discussion of a rich, interpretive repertoire of critical tools that help equity practitioners and researchers to develop projects that are able to address the complexities of inequalities and difference. This session will explore varying analytic lenses that can be used for developing nuanced and theoretically grounded understandings of:

  • what inequities are at play,

  • what impacts inequities have on individuals, communities, institutions,

  • where they originated from/ what sustains them
