Data Analysis

Having a look at the moment at the best way I can be analysing my focus group data. I’ve come across a few ways of using frameworks to sort the responses from these sessions but want to be approaching this task in the best way possible.

One book I’m looking at references ‘in-vivo’ as a coding mechanism, which isn’t a term I’ve heard very often. The term itself is referenced to Udo Kelle and so I’ve requested the particular article to see if it’s of reference to my work. The article is titled: Theory Building in Qualitative Research and Computer Programs for the Management of Textual Data. It should be in the library in a few days and I can then see if it’s of relevance to my work.


Accepted Article – Professional Development in Education

Really pleased to say that an article that I worked on with Vic Boyd from Glasgow School of Art has been published online. The Professional Development in Education journal accepted an viewpoint piece we submitted earlier this year that discusses how creative practitioner confidence can be developed in an ever changing learning landscape.

The piece was created after Vic and I met at a HEA Conference last year, we discussed many common staff development themes that occur at our respective institutions and decided something needed to be written. Really hope this is the first of many pieces together, Glasgow School of Art are similar in many ways, not least our high rate of staff practitioners, so it would be great to work together again in the future.
