Recording Learner-Teacher Interaction

Project Leaders: Dr. John Johnston and Dr. Sue Morison

A range of teaching and learning contexts in Dentistry, Medicine, Pharmacy, Nursing and Midwifery have been either video or audio recorded. A total of ninety-three hours of recording have been undertaken. These recordings have taken place in academic and work-based settings where lecturers and healthcare professionals are involved in teaching undergraduate students. Academic situations include lectures, tutorials, practicals and workshops. Work-based situations include hospital and clinical settings across Northern Ireland.

The focus for the immediate future is a staged transcription and analysis of this interactional data. The aim is to identify pertinent constructs (e.g. educational and socio-cultural dimensions) that contribute to role formation in a range of professional disciplines and to investigate how a greater understanding of students' and teachers' learning and teaching dispositions can inform developments in interprofessional curriculum and assessment.
