Dr. Carolyn Bereznak Kenny (Nang Jaada Sa-ets)
Professor of Human Development and Indigenous Studies
Antioch University, USA
Course Description: In this course we will connect educational practices with qualitative research from ancient to postmodern. We will think about research in relation to phenomenology and how we can learn about ourselves, our students and our research participants through different ways of thinking including various types of ethnography, narrative inquiry, the story method, arts-based research, Indigenous Research Methods, and portraiture. No prior knowledge of phenomenology or research methods is required.
