Dieumegard, Gilles; de Vries, Erica; Perrin, Nicolas – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
This paper aims at examining the use of a theoretical and methodological framework originating in ergonomics, the 'course-of-action method', in the study of individual learning processes in naturally occurring situations. This framework investigates the course of lived experience of each individual. Thus, in addition, to her/his thinking, it…

Kent, Carmel; Rechavi, Amit – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Educational research suggests that interactivity is one of the most important tools for learning. This paper analyses the learning process in online communities by examining three types of interactions among learners: (1) interactions involving the active contribution of content ('digitally speaking'); (2) interactions involving the consumption of…

Schermer, Maike; Fosker, Tim – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2020
Arguably one of the most valuable tools for investigating pupil behaviour in an educational environment is systematic classroom observation. Classroom observation is often cited as having the potential to enable research of the learning process in action. Low inference classroom observation instruments are designed to record a sequence of data…

Lam, Ho Cheong – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Phenomenography is internationally well-known for its use in studying learning and teaching in educational settings. This paper begins with the discussion of two approaches reported in the literature to study classroom teaching in the phenomenography tradition. The paper goes on to put forward a third approach that is in essence to return to the…

Beach, Pamela; McConnel, Jen – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Eye tracking methodology offers insights into human attention, decision-making processes, and user behaviours. In the context of teacher learning, data generated from eye-tracking technology has the potential to provide important information about teachers' behavioural patterns and cognitive processes that may or may not be occurring during…

Willis, Alison S. – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
This paper demonstrates that the phenomenographic methodology -- the study of variations of lived experience -- has the capacity to manage cultural and paradigmatic differences between researchers and participants in cross-cultural research. The process of cross-cultural research presented herein makes a contribution to the existing body of…

Rusk, Fredrik; Pörn, Michaela; Sahlström, Fritjof; Slotte-Lüttge, Anna – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2015
Video is currently used in many studies to document the interaction in conversation analytical (CA) studies on learning. The discussion on the method used in these studies has primarily focused on the analysis or the data construction, whereas the relation between data construction and analysis is rarely brought to attention. The aim of this…

Vesterinen, Olli; Toom, Auli; Patrikainen, Sanna – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2010
This article reports methodological aspects of a research study on the reasoning of teachers. The aim is to describe and evaluate the use of the stimulated recall method (STR) when information and communication technologies (ICTs) are involved in terms of educational settings and therefore in the research setting as well. First, we introduce the…

Wall, Kate; Higgins, Steve – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2006
This paper describes a research tool which aims to gather data about pupils' views of learning and teaching, with a particular focus on their thinking about their learning (metacognition). The approach has proved to be an adaptable and effective technique to examine different learning contexts from the pupils' perspective, while also acting as an…

McMurtry, Angus – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2006
This paper explores the similarities and differences between complexity science's and cultural-historical activity theory's understandings of human learning. Notable similarities include their emphasis on the importance of social systems or collectives in understanding human knowledge and practices, as well as their characterization of systems'…
