Pre-conference course in video analysis

We are fortunate to be able to offer a pre-conference course in video analysis on June 8th and 9th, held by Professor Carey Jewitt from London University, Institute of education.

The pre-conference video workshop is focused on working with video in classroom research. It is organised into four sessions across the two days to focus on four stages involved in the use of video for classroom research.

How to collect video materials: we will explore the different ways that video can be used in research, the key qualities of video materials, and the considerations involved in setting up a video-based research study.
How to manage and sample video materials: we will examine the ethical issues involved in video-based research and how to deal with these, how video materials become data, and methods and issues raised by sampling video data.
How to transcribe video data: we will discuss the purpose of transcription, introduce and compare a range of transcription conventions and explore how processes of transcription shape analysis.
How to analyse rich multimodal video data: we will briefly discuss different approaches to video analysis, and work together to walk through the stages of multimodal video analysis.

Across the sessions we will explore the possibilities and challenges of video in relation to the participants own research, including the type of research questions that it can (and cannot) be used to address. Each session will combine the presentation of information, workshop activities, small and large group discussion, and will include time for question and answers.
