Tracing the evolution of student voice - Alison Cook-Sather

Date / Time: 21 March 2018

Professor Alison Cook-Sather will speak at a Symposium on 21 March on the key developments in the evolution of student voice in the 1990s to elicit student perspectives regarding their learning in primary and secondary schools, through to more current approaches to working with students as partners in, or as leaders of, educational research projects in primary through tertiary educational contexts. The address will touch on the definitions and contexts of “student voice”; the relationship among voice, rights, and power; research methods that have evolved to integrate student voice and participation; the diversification of voices included in student voice research; and changes in (re)presentation of students in educational research.

Alison has published and spoken widely on how differently positioned participants in eduation can work together toward deeper learning.
