Please note that this event has passed.


Self-reflexive research methodologies (eg self-study of practice, autoethnography, narrative inquiry) are becoming increasingly popular in higher education institutions. As self-reflective researchers, we examine our diverse experiences and thoughts to ask: Who is the self who researches? How and why does the researcher's identity matter?

This webinar discusses the concept of self-reflexivity and provides an overview of selected self-reflexive research methodologies. We will look at creative methods, participation, trustworthiness, and ethics in self-reflexive research methodologies, among other issues.

Speaker: Professor Daisy Pillay

Professor Daisy Pillay works in Teacher Development Studies at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. She undertakes research associated with Identity Studies, Teacher Learning, and Teacher’s Lives. Her creative approaches for studying lives include arts-based research, narrative inquiry, self-study research, autoethnography, memory work and life writing.

Her most recent publication is a Special Guest edited issue for Alternations (2021), titled Academic Identities as Epicentres for Social Cohesiveness in Higher Education and Being and becoming human in higher education: A co-autoethnographic inquiry (2022).
