Workshop on “Transitioning into pedagogic research – Dual identities and discipline spanning”

The Society for Research into Higher Education (SHRE) provides excellent workshops. Now online due to the pandemic, SHRE’s recent offerings have been free to attend. This one is, and our REEN Chair can highly recommend it:

Transitioning into pedagogic research – Dual identities and discipline spanning


Workshop presenters: Dr Mark J.P. Kerrigan & Dr Simon Pratt-Adams

Target Audience: MA/MSc/PhD/Academic

Workshop content: This workshop will focus on pedagogic research and the role of the pedagogic researcher in higher education. The focus is to support those transitioning into pedagogical research from another discipline. It will explore the interrelationship between learning, teaching and research at a time when there is increasing emphasis on multidisciplinary research across the HE sector.

It will consider the dual relationship between discipline-centred research and pedagogic research areas and the transitioning between these, with a focus on research methodologies and publication. Taking an interactive approach, this workshop will be an opportunity to share knowledge, experiences and develop strategies and networks between participants  

Learning Outcomes: By the end of this session, the successful participant will be expected to be able to:

  • Discuss the opportunities for developing as a dual-researcher and the position of a pedagogical researcher within the HE environment;
  • Critically evaluate the similarities and differences between research areas and how to manage and transition between these;
  • Explore research methodologies and paradigms, aligned to pedagogical research and develop a critical understanding of how these may differ to one’s own current practice
  • Develop a strategy, and networks, to support the successful transition into research into educational research in Higher Education.

Assumed participant knowledge: Participants should have knowledge of what pedagogical research is and may have research experience at UG level or higher. 

Materials required: Zoom including breakout rooms, Padlet
