Incidents for reflection in research
Hughes, Hilary E. (2008) Incidents for reflection in research. In Keynote and Refereed Papers from the 5th International Lifelong Learning Conference, Central Queensland University, Yeppoon, Queensland, pp. 214-219.
Reflection helps us make sense of our daily lives. It underpins lifelong learning, enhances professional practice and can play an important role in research. In this paper I draw on my current research experiences to illustrate the various ways in which reflection can support the development and implementation of a research study. I also explain how critical incidents can provide a reflective focus.
This paper is in three main parts. The first part outlines my study12 and defines the key concepts reflection and critical incidents. The second part offers the researcher perspective, showing how reflection on my own experiences as an international student, and on my professional interactions with international students,influenced the development of the study. The third part offers the participant perspective: it presents an international student’s reflective responses to his learning- related online information use, indicating their contribution to the study’s findings and outcomes. In this way the paper both reflects the progress of my research and signals outcomes of potential interest to information literacy educators and educators.
