πŸ“’ Call for contributions on mixed methods | πŸ“₯ deadline: 30 April 2021

πŸ—£οΈ Save the Date | CO:RE Ethics Webinar: Research Integrity

πŸ“… Tuesday, 04 May 2021 | ⏰10-11.30 CEST | 🎟️ Register here!

Our colleagues in Norway, Elisabeth Staksrud and Niamh NΓ­ Bhroin are inviting you to discuss research integrity in working with children and digital media, challenges arising in our field, and strategies to address these. Make sure to use the opportunity to interact and submit your questions or issues you're currently (or have been) dealing with via our contact form (subject: ethics webinar) or as a direct message on our Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or ResearchGate profile.

πŸ—£οΈ Save the Date | CO:RE Theories Webinar: Children and the Digital Environment

πŸ“… Friday, 07 May 2021 | ⏰16.30-18.00 CEST | 🎟️ Register here!

Children's lives have become digital by default, and technology is the taken-for-granted means of playing, seeing family, doing schoolwork, hanging out with friends in a post-COVID world. The distinction between the offline and online no longer offers a meaningful way of conceptualising the infrastructure of life, but what can we replace it with? Where does the digital begin and end, what does it incorporate? What are the implications for children? In this webinar, Sonia Livingstone and Mariya Stoilova, together with invited experts, will debate the theories and concepts that underpin such questions, drawing on different disciplinary approaches.




πŸ‘©β€πŸ« CO:RE Methods Summer School | Sustainable Digital Life: Methodological Aspects (5 ECTS) 

πŸ“… 02-13 August 2021 | Application deadline: 07 June | 🎟️ Apply here!

This course, offered by our CO:RE team at Tampere University, enables students to focus on the sustainability of research with children and young people in digital environments from a qualitative perspective. It introduces the concept of sustainability in digital environments from a methodological perspective in the form of a practical, case-based workshop. The focus is on introducing different research possibilities in digital environments utilising qualitative methodologies with fieldwork. The individual sessions discuss methods critically, both in terms of implementation and execution, from planning to organising and analysing with assessments, including ethical research perspectives, especially on children and youth in digital environments.

Stay healthy and stay tuned.
