International Baccalaureate Symposium
A Flinders University IB Symposium will be held on November 23rd and 24th
The Southern Schools Research Group hosted the first in what we anticipate will be an ongoing series of collaborative 'twilight' research meetings, each highlighting a specific research method/methodology. On Monday July 5th, (from 4:30 - 6pm in the International Room 5.34), the Southern Schools Group presented six, ten-minute presentations focusing on "interviews" as a key research technique. The six researchers provided a wonderfully diverse window onto the world of interviewing. Their approaches ranging from quantitative survey research through to post-structuralism. The night was very well attended, the ensuing discussion was lively and everyone enjoyed a beverage and light snack. Look out for our next twilight seminar which we hope to run in September 2010.
