Research seminar: Student midwives' situated learning: Capturing the non-formal aspects of practice through audio-diaries

In this seminar, Gina will share findings from a doctoral study which explored situated learning in midwifery practice. A sample of student midwives from five universities in England recorded their experiences of learning and support in audio-diary format. The diaries were analysed within a narrative analysis framework to capture the 'voice' of the learners. Discourse analysis was used to interrogate the data and to illuminate the students' individual interpretive repertoires and the challenges inherent in learning the craft of midwifery. Gina welcomes critique, debate and suggestions on ways to inform policy and practice.

If you would like to come along and find out more about this study, please RSVP by email by Monday 31 March 2014.

This is a lunchtime seminar so please feel free to bring your lunch with you.
