Use of self and reflexivity in qualitative research content.
Developing reflexive research practice is central to the content, conduct and product of research. This session considers the role of values in research, and provides a reflexive account of the 'researcher's self' in the context of a qualitative doctoral study. Examples of reflexive practice are provided to illustrate how one's assumptions and preconceptions can affect decisions throughout the research process. Consideration is given to practical strategies, including the use of tools to foster reflexive writing techniques.
