Making a Difference: Working with Users to Develop Educational Research

Anne Edwards, Judy Sebba & Mark Rickinson

TLRP Annual Conference, 28-30 November 2005

Scarman Conference Centre, Warwick


User engagement rhetoric or reality

User Engagement: rhetoric or reality?

  • Funders expect user engagement in applications

  • Verification of findings & accessibility of outputs is important but not enough

  • What does ‘meaningful’ user engagement look like – throughout the research process?

    ‘sustained interactivity transforms one-way reporting into mutual learning’ (Weiss, 1998)

  • Research design not yet addressed


The seminar series

The Seminar Series

  • Different interpretations of ‘user engagement

  • Different frameworks for promoting user engagement

  • Funders, policy-makers, practitioners and researchers

  • TLRP, education and other social sciences

  • Implications for research design


Seminar one the tlrp experience

Seminar One: the TLRP experience

  • Research genres: different beliefs about knowledge and how it is produced and used

  • Relationships with research: an evidence informed approach, a theory-led approach, an interaction between theory and practice

  • Issues of time-scale: evidence often too late for both policy and practice


Seminar two research policy

Seminar Two: research & policy

  • Three approaches to the relationship between research, policy and practice: incrementalist, radical democratic, radical policy-oriented (Alan Dyson)

  • Research needs to be embodied as well as embedded (Sandra Nutley)

  • Need to focus on the enduring issues to generate resources on which policy-makers can draw (Andrew Pollard)


Seminar three research practice

Seminar Three: research & practice

  • Types of knowledge flow (down, along and up stream)

  • Research use is ‘not a clean process’ (Robin Bevan)

  • Mediators, tipping points, permission, spaces, relationships, funding …

  • Certainties, contentions and enduring concerns (Lesley Saunders)

Questions for discussion

User engagement

Research design

Questions for discussion

Is it a question of ….

How can different research designs better embrace user engagement?

Or

What yet to be tried research designs could better support user engagement?

Or

What understandings of the design process might support user engagement?

e.g. ecological design: ‘design as a continuous learning process rather than a blueprint’
