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.
