Researching Employment Relations: A Self-Reflexive Analysis of a Multi-Method, School-Based Project
McDonald, Paula; Graham, Tina
Youth Studies Australia, v30 n2 p48-56 Jun 2011
Drawing on primary data and adjunct material, this article adopts a critical self-reflexive approach to a three-year, Australian Research Council-funded project that explored themes around "employment citizenship" for high school students in Queensland. The article addresses three overlapping areas that reflect some of the central dilemmas and challenges arising through the project--consent in the context of research ethics, questionnaire administration in schools, and focus group research practice. It contributes to the broader methodological literature addressing research with young people by canvassing pragmatic suggestions for future school-based research, and research addressing adolescent employment.
