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.
Course unit contents: Introduction to qualitative and ethnographic methods
Basic analytic principles in conversation analysis
Simple and multimodal transcriptions
Conversational practices in face-to-face and mediated interaction
Action courses and action sequences
Institutional and mediated conversations
Systematic video-analysis
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: The course includes both lectures and exercises and it is fully exploited by attending it, given its emphasis on exercises and workshops. Attendance will be tracked. The course is integrated with workshops on data transcription and on the creation of coding schemes.
