The seminar’s overall aim will be to ‘introduce’ the participants to narrative inquiry in creative and engaging ways that seek to mirror the approach itself.

Narrative inquiry is growing in popularity as a research methodology in the social sciences, medicine and the humanities. Its use is particularly powerful in practitioner research, in researching professional identities and in enabling marginalised voices to be heard as it seeks to foreground people’s lived experiences, including those of the researcher(s).

The seminar will draw on relevant research and practice to articulate and discuss the complexities in learning and teaching in an international higher education context, identifying those elements that enable inclusive and ethical practices.

Arranged by the research programme EPOKE.
