- About Deakin
Each year the Contemporary Approaches to Research in Mathematics, Science, Health and Environmental Education Symposium focuses on practical and theoretical aspects of a range of research methodologies. They follow the highly successful symposia held annually from 1993 to 2005, in which methodological techniques and issues - such as cross-cultural perspectives, activity theory, capturing complexity, classroom video analysis, quantitative methods, and interviewing - have been discussed in a lively, informal setting.
In education research, the visual is emerging as central to a variety of methodologies dealing with ethnographies, with spatial relations, with capture of environments, and with cognition. In this symposium, researchers from Deakin and other institutions who are working in this visual field presented 'provocations' to stimulate discussion on each of these perspectives. The intention was to explore the ways in which these differing approaches to the visual might speak to each other in productive ways.
This symposium was presented by STEME in conjunction with CREFI in October 2012.
