Gibbs, Graham R. (2013) New pedagogies and new resources in qualitative research teaching. In: Re-energising undergraduate research methods pedagogy in education, 18th June 2013, Liverpool Hope University, UK.

For many years teaching research methods was a small-scale affair often done using an apprenticeship approach whereby the student learned from their supervisor by doing and trying the activities required. The details of data gathering and data analysis in qualitative research were treated as a dark art, to be gained only by long experience in the field. Now, there is a need to teach these methods to large numbers of students, at undergraduate level and from a wide range of disciplines. Fortunately there are some excellent textbooks on both data gathering and data analysis, but some of the character of the apprenticeship learning experiences is still not captured by texts and, beside, many students learn better in other ways. This presentation examines three sources of resources that go beyond the textbook: a) Data sets for qualitative data analysis, b) multimedia resources on qualitative data analysis, and c) general video resources on qualitative methods (including lecture capture). It considers the sources of these resources and some of the issues of their creation and use in teaching and learning. The presentation concludes with an exploration of some of the pedagogic issues the use of these resources raise, such as availability, discoverability, quality and their embedding in teaching programmes.
