Using Interpretative Meta-Ethnography to Explore the Relationship between Innovative Approaches to Learning and Their Influence on Faculty Understanding of Teaching
Savin-Baden, Maggi; Major, Claire Howell
Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education and Educational Planning, v54 n6 p833-852 Dec 2007
Faculty experiences of innovative approaches to learning and the changes to their knowledge emerging from such experiences constitute an important area of inquiry that has to date largely been ignored or has been approached with research methods ill-suited to examining such experiences. This paper adopts interpretative meta-ethnography as its research framework to investigate the changes to faculty knowledge that occur when they adopt problem-based learning (PBL). The paper presents themes that emerged through the analysis and argues for future inquiry.
