Analyzing Classroom Interactions Summer School 2021:


In this summer school, we will bring together the methodological expertise from the University of Groningen, as well as national and international colleagues, providing you with the opportunity to learn about different approaches and methods used within the paradigm of educational interactions.

Building on a unique combination of different disciplinary perspectives, this summer school will appeal to students and early career researchers with an interest, and potentially data, in interaction and learning; it will also welcome applicants without any previous training in the subject, who are interested in exploring classroom interaction as a subject for the continuation of their academic career. Learning, inside and outside schools, happens in interaction between children and their teachers, parents, and peers. It takes human interaction to learn to talk, to do math, to collaborate and to learn autonomously. Research on educational interactions has grown tremendously in the past decade. It reveals important insights for educational improvement. This summer school will offer a broad range of methods to capture and analyse classroom interactions.

The summer school is primarily intended for graduate students to early career researchers, but will be open to advanced undergraduate students who are willing to take on an inspiring challenge. No specific prior knowledge or experience is required. Undergraduate students will need to have already acquired 120 ECTS in their bachelor programme. It is expected that the participants have a sufficient command of the English language to actively participate in the discussions and to present their own work in English.

After this course you will be able to:

  • describe the theoretical underpinnings of micro-analytic research on classroom interactions
  • formulate your own research questions
  • set up a design for research on classroom interactions
  • analyze data on classroom interactions using state-of-the-art techniques

The workload is estimated at 56 hours, and includes participation in all summer school activities and preparation (reading all material, poster preparation).
