EDEC 6550 - Ethics, Methods and Theories in the Study of Children

3 hours

Explores ethics, methods, and theoretical frameworks in research with children. Students examine multiple research methodologies undertaken in different fields of study to identify the underlying assumptions about children and research that guides these studies. We read and discuss ethnographies and ethnographic case studies of childhoods that attempt to (re)write the world with children’s voices. Students are expected to conduct a small ethnographic case study of an educational/childcare space to glean children’s perspectives into their experiences within these spaces.

Prerequisite(s): None.

Students will need to locate an educational or childcare site with children to conduct a small ethnographic case study. Roughly 20 hours on site will be required.
