Video in Research on Learning and Education summer school course will be organised for the fifth year running. The previous courses have been given excellent student feedback, and we look forward to welcoming enthusiastic video researchers to Helsinki also in 2013.
This Video Research course is targeted at students keen to use video-based methods and technologies in research on learning and education. The students will learn to conduct video research in diverse settings, examine video analysis tools and methods, and gain insight into the theoretical background and ethical issues of video research. Overall, the course provides an overview of the current trends and phenomena in video research.
Video in Research on Learning and Education is an excellent opportunity for students and researchers to network while developing their understanding about the possibilities and challenges of video research. Participants are also encouraged to share their experiences of video research tools and their own video research projects.
Who should attend?
The course is intended for master’s level and postgraduate students who use or plan to use video-based methods and technologies for inquiries in educational research or related fields. The course leaders will also consider applicants who are in the final phases of their undergraduate studies and are familiar with video research.
The course is multidisciplinary in nature with an emphasis on behavioural sciences research. The applicants should therefore have some background in behavioural sciences.
