2008 - Symposium paper

Statistical versus personal narratives of the effect of pedagogy on learning
Pampaka, M., Williams, J. & Wake, G.

In this paper we reflect on the 'effectiveness research' that the project has conducted as regards 'pedagogy' we reconceptualise this work as a form of 'narrative': in itself, and contrast it with the narratives of our qualitative research, and with a reflective story of the research written for the purposes of this paper. For us 'story-telling' is an activity of reporting that, according to activity theory, has an object, but is mediated by instruments (genres) and rules (story-telling norms etc) that serve certain, sometimes inexplicit, purposes in regards to the outcomes subjectively sought. In this way we try to generate insights into our research, and hence perhaps research in general.
