Analyzing Classroom Interactions

when 6 July 2021 - 10 July 2021
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 260

Due to the covid-19 outbreak, all programmes for 2020 have been cancelled.

Building on a unique combination of different disciplinary perspectives, this summer school will appeal to students and early career researchers with an interest, and potentially data, in interaction and learning; it will also welcome applicants without any previous training in the subject, who are interested in exploring classroom interaction as a subject for the continuation of their academic career. Learning, inside and outside schools, happens in interaction between children and their teachers, parents, and peers. It takes human interaction to learn to talk, to do math, to collaborate and to learn autonomously. Research on educational interactions has grown tremendously in the past decade. It reveals important insights for educational improvement. This summer school will offer a broad range of methods to capture and analyse classroom interactions.

During the summer school, you will have a chance to attend and take active part in lectures and workshops from leading experts. Techniques that will be addressed range from gathering and coding interactional data, to analyzing these data using qualitative and quantitative methods. Bringing in your own data for analysis and discussion is highly encouraged.
