Photography in Educational Research

Author: Susie Miles
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781135009175
Release Date: 2014-11-27
Genre: Education

Photography in education involves the use of photographs to engage research participants in representing and reflecting upon their own experiences. This book explores how photographic images can be used in a range of educational settings in different cultural contexts, as a method of facilitating communication and reflection on significant issues in people’s lives. It considers the opportunities that are created through the use of photography as a visual research method, and addresses fundamental issues about identity, representation, participation and power which underlie participatory practice. Bringing together a variety of international contributors, chapters describe and reflect on experiences of using photography, situating them in a critical framework to provoke informed applications of these processes. The collection adopts a broad view of education, considering voices of people of different ages who are at various stages on their educational journey, or who have diverse perspectives on their educational experience: young British Muslims, trainee science teachers, audiologists, teachers of deaf children, mobile teacher educators working in conflict zones, young people with disabilities, community workers and school students, in countries as diverse as Australia, Burma, Cyprus, England, Ethiopia, Kenya, the United States and Sudan. Photography in Educational Research will be key reading for educational researchers, postgraduate students studying research methods and ethics, tutors working in higher education, and individual practitioners and teams within schools interested in young people’s voices, ethnicity, mental health, global citizenship and school development.

Genre: Social Science

Social researchers increasingly find themselves looking beyond conventional methods to address complex research questions. This is the first book to comprehensively examine emergent qualitative and quantitative theories and methods across the social and behavioral sciences. Providing scholars and students with a way to retool their research choices, the volume presents cutting-edge approaches to data collection, analysis, and representation. Leading researchers describe alternative uses of traditional quantitative and qualitative tools; innovative hybrid or mixed methods; and new techniques facilitated by technological advances. Consistently formatted chapters explore the strengths and limitations of each method for studying different types of research questions and offer practical, in-depth examples.

Pedagogies Physical Culture and Visual Methods

Author: Laura Azzarito
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781136291975
Release Date: 2013-02-11
Genre: Education

To understand and more creatively capture the social world, visual methods have increasingly become used by researchers in the social sciences and education. However, despite the rapid development of visual-based knowledge, and despite the obvious links between human movement and visual forms of understanding, visual research has been scarce in the fields of physical culture and physical education pedagogy. This groundbreaking book is the first to mark a "visual turn" in understanding and researching physical culture and pedagogies, offering innovative, image-based research that reveals key issues in the domains of sport, health, and physical education studies. Integrating visual research into physical culture and pedagogy studies, the book provides the reader with different ways of "seeing", looking at, and critically engaging with physical culture. Since human movement is increasingly created, established, and pedagogized beyond traditional educational sites such as schools, sport clubs, and fitness gyms, the book also explores the notion of visual pedagogy in wider physical culture, helping the reader to understand how visual-based technologies such as television, the internet, and mobile phones are central to people’s engagement with physical culture today. The book demonstrates how the visual creates dynamic pedagogical tools for revealing playful forms of embodiment, and offers the reader a range of visual methods, from researcher-produced photo analysis to participatory-centred visual approaches, that will enhance their own study of physical culture. Pedagogies, Physical Culture and Visual Methods is important reading for all advanced students and researchers with an interest in human movement, physical education, physical culture, sport studies, and research methods in education.
