Narrative inquiry

30 July 2013

Join us on July 30 for the second in a series of six talks aimed at beginning and established researchers interested in developing their understanding of arts-based and arts-informed research. A list of further reading is provided for each topic. In this presentation, Associate Professor Lesley Harbon will describe how our personal and professional narratives embody our knowledge, values and understandings. She will show how, in the case of education research, we can examine and analyse teachers' and students' stories of classrooms, teaching and learning to investigate education practices and explore different phenomena. Narrative-inquiry research will be examined to shed insights into how best to gather stories, thereby finding meaning within them.
