Title: Understanding Educational Settings Using Visual Perspectives: Methodological Affordances and Challenges

Session organizers: Analía Inés Meo, Ana Heras, Carolina Cambre

Abstract: In the field we forge dialogic relations, crucial aspects of knowledge production. We use a variety of ways of recording and documenting what goes on at different stages of our research in formal and non-formal educational settings, based on methodological, theoretical and epistemological reasons. This session will focus on the methodological affordances and limitations of engaging with visual techniques when researching in formal and non-formal educational settings. Visual data are often produced and analyzed in relation to other types of data (e.g., written, oral and alternative modalities). One might then situate this type of research as multi-modal data production and analysis. The use of multi-modal data collection techniques and analyses demand closer attention since they attempt to decenter "words" or language in what comes to be understood as knowledge. We are particularly interested in discussing with those who conduct this kind of research: i) what epistemic and theoretical opportunities this kind of multi-layered methodological perspective has to offer; ii) what kinds of analytic obstacles and/or opportunities researchers face when recording, organising and analysing different visual and audiovisual data; and iii) what kinds of analytic trajectories researchers have followed to interpret visual records in relation to other empirical evidence.
