Learning in Science and Engineering Reading Group
Established in 2001, the LSE Reading Group is a central pillar of CREE’s activities. It brings together people from multiple disciplines in engineering and science and takes them into the world of the social sciences through selected books and papers which introduce educational researchers to the ontological and epistemological ideas that form the cornerstone of this “alternative” perspective. Both experienced as well as beginner researchers find these sessions valuable in engaging with education research theory.
An example of reading material for the group is Professor Jenni Case's book: Researching student learning in higher education: A social realist approach.
The group meets roughly once a month and is open to anyone who is interested in attending.
The current reading for 2015 is “Research Methods in Education” by Cohen, Manion and Morrison (2011).
