ECM Faculty Seminar : A social realist approach to researching student learning in higher education: exploring engineering education Other events...
Many contemporary concerns in higher education focus on the student experience of learning. With a larger and much more diverse intake than ever before at the same time that funding for higher education is being cut back in some parts of the world and at least limited elsewhere, questions are being asked afresh around the purposes of higher education. This talk puts forward a social realist approach to researching student learning, illustrating its potential value by an exploration of student learning in engineering education. Employing Margaret Archerís social realist theory, student narratives are employed towards developing a realist understanding of the underlying mechanisms that constrain and enable student success.
