Institutional Ethnography: Exploring Changes in Public Education

Wednesday, 18 July 2018: 17:30-19:20
TG06 Institutional Ethnography (host committee)

Language: English

This session seeks papers incorporating Institutional Ethnography research that explore education from early childhood and primary grades to secondary school to adult education to college and university. Papers selected for this session will be based on research that reveals the ways in which changes in publically-funded education in local, national and global contexts are impacting students, educators, families, communities and others in education-related fields. The session is designed to illustrate how Institutional Ethnography can show not only how those changes are happening, but also how they reshape policies and practices that address issues of access, equity, and equal opportunity in education.
