Discipline variations will be emphasised.

Work-based Research

This session will cover key issues to be considered when planning and carrying out work based research (WBR). The main focus will be on WBR in the researcher’s own organisation. Questions covered will include:

  • Does WBR challenge traditional higher education?
  • Is it helpful to conceptualise WBR as reflective practice?
  • WBR – doing to or doing with?
  • Who needs to negotiate the WBR contract?
  • What are the ethics of care in participant observation and WBR?
  • How do I develop a WBR proposal and thesis?

The session will draw upon material from the first UK textbook on work based research jointly authored by the tutor:

Costley, C, Elliott, G and Gibbs, P (2010) Doing Work Based Research: approaches to enquiry for insider researchers, London: Sage.
