"Nine Rules of Engagement: Reflections on Reflexivity" by Thomas Owren

"Nine Rules of Engagement: Reflections on Reflexivity" by Thomas Owren | Higher Education Teach-ologies | Scoop.it
Wishing to be reflexive, to critically examine our assumptions, is easy. Doing it is less so. For researchers doing a study in their own professional field, it represents a particular challenge. In this essay, I explore this challenge using my own study as exemplar. I am researching workplace inclusion of workers with intellectual disability. As a professional, I have worked with and for people with intellectual disability for many years. The knowledge I bring to my inquiry – about the inabilities, vulnerabilities and needs ascribed to persons labelled thus – is deeply entrenched in common culture, as well as in my professional training. How can I handle this knowledge in my research? To what extent may, or must, it command my perceptions and interpretations? How may I challenge and look beyond it? Exploring this, I consult a handful of researchers who have examined pitfalls of involving informants with intellectual disability in research. I also call upon four giants of social science – Hans-Georg Gadamer, Charles Taylor, Pierre Bourdieu and Michel Foucault – as well as Brian Eno, British musician and producer extraordinaire. Departing from a concrete situation, the essay winds its way through nine discussions, each generating a “rule of engagement.” Although the discussions are specific to my project, these nine methodological suggestions, ranging from seemingly trivial to decidedly non-trivial, are not. My belief is that they may hold some interest for any qualitative researcher.

Some good insights.

Jerry Busone's curator insight, February 6, 8:21 AM

While I like developing people towards what they do best impacts engagement...it isn’t the 100% best way to coach ... taking a flexible approach ...and identify what you’re working towards. Chic Fil A has the most engaged fast food associates I’ve ever experienced...everyone is developed to a company standard. Everyone says please and thank you with sincerity. But given all the alternatives this is a good method people enjoy...and feel connected. That alone impacts engagement.

The positive connection between games and online learning | Higher Education Teach-ologies | Scoop.it
Spread the loveBy Mitch Weisburgh, cofounder of Games4Ed Game-based learning has the potential to drastically improve the way children are taught. Games have peculiar qualities that let them engage hard-to-reach students in a way lessons cannot. Researchers have begun to explore the intrinsic qualities of games that make them promising learning tools, and anecdotal evidence is available everywhere. I personally know a student who struggled in history until Assassin’s Creed sparked his interest in the French revolution; he is now an honors history student. I know many students who spend hours playing Minecraft and many hours more learning new skills …
