Qualitative data analysis and classroom talk

Alec McHoul

Alec McHoul is Professor of Communication and Cultural Studies at Murdoch University. He has worked extensively in various fields of qualitative research, including ethnomethodology and conversation analysis. Some of this work has involved the analysis of interaction in classrooms and other institutional settings. He has published in the areas of discourse analysis, cultural theory, literary studies and technology. His most recent books include Semiotic Investigations (Nebraska), Popular Culture and Everyday Life (Sage; with Toby Miller) and an edited collection, How to Analyse Talk in Institutional Settings (Continuum; with Mark Rapley).

In this workshop, Alec will introduce various aspects of how qualitative work is done, with specific emphasis on classroom talk and related topics.

The workshop will be interactive, involving discussion of participants' own research questions.
