MUIN data sessions:


MIUN data sessions is a forum to bring social interaction researchers together to work on work-in-progress video recorded data sets brought by guest presenters.

The purpose of these data sessions is to create a space for social interaction researchers to collaboratively work on data in order to understand the social actions as they unfold in everyday lives. In addition, these data sessions aim to strengthen the teacher education and language teaching programs, and, in particular, English language teaching (ELT) and classroom interaction research at the Mid Sweden University. Besides data sets on social interaction, the organizers of the data seminar therefore welcome naturally-occurring classroom data and especially with a focus on teacher-student and ELT classroom interaction.

The following research questions (but not limited to) will be focused:

  • What are the findings from classroom interaction research that can be utilised to improve university teaching and learning?
  • What are the cutting edge research results from conversation analysis that can pinpoint good teaching practices?
  • Concerning methodological frameworks, the data seminar is open to any methodological approach relevant to social interaction. However, the seminar organizers have expertise on Conversation Analysis and therefore the data sessions will highlight naturally-occurring audio and video data, verbal and multimodal aspects of human interaction (e.g., gestures, body movements, body configurations), and fine-grained, qualitative, micro analysis.

Social interaction researchers employ robust methodology which provides authentic information about the audio and video data as and how it happens by focusing on both verbal and multimodal aspects of human interaction e.g. gestures, body movements, body configurations etc. Therefore, multimodal analysis will be employed due to the nature of the audio and video data under study which requires a qualitative approach providing fine-grained analysis.
