Research matters: framing and situating pedagogic research

Rachel Masika, Adrian Chown

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapter

Abstract

This editorial introduction frames the articles from the pedagogic research conference 2018 by highlighting the broader context in which pedagogic research operates, the opportunities, contested space and tensions as well as its multi-disciplinary nature. While pedagogic researchers use a range of theories, methods and methodologies, a common feature is the commitment to improve understanding and practices of learning and teaching. This diversity in approach is demonstrated by the different foci of the papers in this publication. The articles focus on enquiry that aims to better understand students’ learning, engagement, experiences and outcomes, or considerations for the translation of these kinds of enquiry into articles in peer-reviewed journals for wider learning.
