Ethnography In Work Integrated Learning Research, Bonnie Amelia Dean, Christopher S. Sykes, Jan Turbill Jan 2018

Ethnography In Work Integrated Learning Research, Bonnie Amelia Dean, Christopher S. Sykes, Jan Turbill

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

This paper introduces and discusses ethnography as a methodological approach to investigate phenomena at the place of practice in WIL. The commensurability of ethnography for examining WIL 'in situ' is presented in order to delve deeper into WIL phenomena on placement through greater temporal and physical proximity. Part of the reason we haven't been able to fully understand student learning on placement, for example, is because of a lack of awareness and uptake of methodologies that employ direct observation in WIL spaces. Ethnography could open the door to investigating a range of research areas previously obscured or inaccessible by ...

Streaming Physiological Data: General Public Perceptions Of Secondary Use And Application To Research In Neonatal Intensive Care, Carolyn P. Mcgregor, Jennifer A. Heath, Yvonne Choi

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

High speed physiological data represents one of the most untapped resources in healthcare today and is a form of Big Data. Physiological data is captured and displayed on a wide range of devices in healthcare environments. Frequently this data is transitory and lost once initially displayed. Researchers wish to store and analyze these datasets, however, there is little evidence of any engagement with citizens regarding their perceptions of physiological data capture for secondary use. This paper presents the findings of a self-administered household survey (n=165, response rate = 34%) that investigated Australian and Canadian citizens' perceptions of such physiological data ...

A Critical Turn In Higher Education Research: Turning The Critical Lens On The Academic Language And Learning Educator, Alisa Percy Jan 2014

A Critical Turn In Higher Education Research: Turning The Critical Lens On The Academic Language And Learning Educator, Alisa Percy

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

This paper suggests that historical ontology, as one form of reflexive critique, is an instructive research design for making sense of the political and historical constitution of the Academic Language and Learning (ALL) educator in Australian higher education. The ALL educator in this paper refers to those practitioners in the field of ALL, whose ethical agency has largely been taken for granted since their slow and uneven emergence in the latter half of the twentieth century. Using the lens of governmentality, genealogical design and archaeological method, the historical ontology proposed in this paper demonstrates how the ethical remit of the ...

Coalition Formation In Networked Innovation: Directions For Future Research, Rory L. Sie, Marlies Bitter-Rijpkema, Peter Sloep

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

During the last several decades, we see a tendency towards openly distributed knowledge. Whereas we experienced an open source movement in the 80's, we now see that open learning and open innovation have become popular. Akin to open source code encouraging transformational creativity (Boden, 2004), open or networked innovation may lead to more effective organisational learning (Sloep, 2009a). This process of open knowledge exchange involves short time commitments, similar to those in Ad-Hoc Transient Communities (AHTC). We would like to pose a new view on the interpersonal ties in networked innovation, that is, the view of interpersonal ties as ...
