Syllabus
Prerequisites: Ability to read English texts
Target skills and knowledge: The goal of the course is to introduce methodological principles, procedural criteria and theoretical bases of the qualitative methods applied to the study of technologically mediated interactions. Great emphasis is given to the ethnographic approach on the one hand and to the use of video-recorded data on the other hand. The methods introduced include conversation analysis, gesture analysis, interaction analysis and – more broadly – systematic video-analysis. The course is prominently practical, with large room for exercises and workshops.
Examination methods: Written, with open and multiple choice questions
Assessment criteria: In the written answers to the examination questions, the following elements will contribute to a positive evaluation: correctness, pertinence, terminological appropriateness, ability to distinguish between analysis and comments, argumentative accuracy.
Attending students will also be evaluated based on the quality of their participation in class and of their exercises.
