PhD Master Class - Research in Designs for Learning - Various Multimodal Research Approaches
The master class is an extra feature, and offers PhD students at the conference a forum for discussing, practicing and reflecting on the methodology of their projects from various multimodel perspectives.
When new learning cultures emerge in institutions and in workplaces multimodality becomes relevant to everybody who investigate organizations of learning processes, organizational changes and development processes as well as in pedagogical situations. The concept of multimodality relates - but not only to digial technologies, which expose the complex experience of semiotic and sense based systems in meaning making and communication.
The master class will addres various topics within the area of multimodality of relevance for the participants and examples of approaches are presented. The participantes will be requested to send an abstract addressing a methodological issue of relevance for doing research in designs for learning with a multimodal approach. During the master class the participants present their methodological issues, and get response from a group of professors with various competences in the field.
A registered PhD student joins the master class for free. Each PhD project will be given ample of time for discussion with senior researchers and fellow PhD students. The submitted extended abstracts will be included in the conference proceedings and presented at an extended poster session at the main conference. The extended poster session includes a short time slot for oral plenary presentation of each poster.
