    GLIT 6756: Teachers as Consumers of Research GLIT 6756: Teachers as Consumers of Research Presentation Transcript

    • GLIT 6756: Becoming Informed Consumers of Literacy Research Colin Lankshear & Michele Knobel c.lankshear@yahoo.com & michele.knobel@msvu.ca
    • Research as systematic inquiry p. 29 of your textbook
    • Relationship of Research Logic to Evaluation Template
      • Context of study (purpose, question, problem area, relevant other research)
      • Framework (theory and concepts)
      • Design and methodology
      • The template summary
    • Tasks for today
      • Forming work groups (teams) & sending names and email addresses to Michele & Colin
      • Kitting up (key resources for the semester)
      • Working through the template
      • Practising with the template in work groups
      • Locating a literacy research-based paper to critique (that all members of a group can “ relate to ” )
    • Forming work groups
      • Ideally 4-6 members
      • Likely to share some common interest to help with article selection
      • Likely to be able to work together online and offline and contribute equally to the final analytic paper
    • Kitting up
      • Using Google Docs to write collaboratively ( http://docs.google.com )
      • Using internet to communicate between meetings (e.g., www.skype.com or messenger/chat, blog, Facebook, email)
      • Resources for finding a suitable article (e.g., http://scholar.google.com MSVU online article archives)
    • Using Google Docs
    • Google Docs (cont.)
    • Google Docs (cont.)
    • Google Docs (cont.) Title your document here
    • Google docs (cont.)
      • Share your Google Docs with Colin and Michele:
      • [email_address]
      • [email_address]
    • Using Scholar Google as a meta-search engine Select “Scholar Preferences”
    • Scholar Google (cont.) Write out uni name in full
    • Scholar Google (cont.) Place check mark in box
    • Scholar Google (cont.)
    • Critiquing Gainer article
      • In groups, work through the Gainer article, using the analytic template found in Appendix 1 of your syllabus to guide your evaluation
      • Discuss as a whole group
      • This is a sampling of the kind of process you’ll go through for your final paper
    • Finding a focus article
      • The article must be relevant to literacy studies.
      • The article must be a peer-reviewed and formally published research article.
      • Ideally published within the past 5 years.
      • You need to be truly interested in the focus of the article. Focus must be good and “ meaty ”
      • The focus of your article needs to have a prior history of research – be part of a research area or field
      • Your final paper must engage with debates, present an argument, and include critique (your group needs to take a theorised position and you’ll be reading well beyond your focus article)
