MODE: An introduction to researching embodiment in digital learning environments Print
Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh
Dr Sara Price/Professor Carey Jewitt

Date and Time:
Wednesday, 14 March 2012, 11:00 - 17:00

Aim and focus

This seminar, organised by the NCRM MODE node, will examine how embodiment is understood and researched within digital technologies (e.g. tangible, sensor, mobile) with a focus on three themes:

1) physical manipulation through tangible technologies;

2) context-based interaction through mobile devices; and

3) whole-body physical action through sensor-based technologies.

The seminar will use a mix of presentation, data examples, discussion, and structured exercises to explore concepts and methodological approaches to embodiment in these different contexts of interaction.

It is designed to ensure time is available for participant discussion to explore their own ideas, research and to create opportunities for extending these themes.

Who is this seminar for?

Early Career Researchers; postgraduate researchers (PhD and Masters students) and those interested in research around embodiment and digital technologies. No prior knowledge needed
