Phenomenography Research Seminar

Phenomenography is a qualitative approach to research that seeks to map the qualitative
variation in the experience of a phenomenon. This research perspective is becoming
increasingly popular in Northern Europe, South East Asia, and Australia, but the field is still
in its infancy in the UK. This seminar, being presented by the Institute for the Advancement
of University Learning, will focus on the methodology and outcomes of this research

It will take place on Wednesday, 5 September, 9 a.m.--5 p.m., in New College. The
full cost for the day (including lunch, and tea/coffee) is £35. The Institute anticipates
arranging an evening meal for the group the night before the event.

The seminar will be oriented towards researchers engaged in phenomenographic
studies. Presentations (of new work) will be limited to three to four papers and to less than
half the total seminar time. A recent study combining phenomenography with analysis of
metaphor will be the feature presentation. The whole group will work together for the day,
and to make this manageable, overall numbers are limited to thirty-five.

Anyone who wishes to attend is asked to e-mail Dr Keith Trigwell (e-mail:
