In this webinar by CHERE@LU (Centre for Higher Education Research and Evaluation), we are hosting Dr Emilee Rauschenberger.

About the webinar:

Dr Janja Komljenovic is hosting Dr Emilee Rauschenberger on the topic of conducting interviews online or by telephone for academic research. Interviewing by distance raises concerns including questions on validity and quality of data, ethical considerations, and the appropriateness for particular research phenomena. However, such an approach has both, advantages and disadvantages. Emilee will share her rich experience and discuss dos and don'ts of such data collection technique.

About the speaker:

Dr Emilee Rauschenberger is a Senior Research Fellow at the Manchester Metropolitan University where she researches policy networks, processes, and outcomes related to education and teacher development. She is particularly interested in new policy actors, evidence, and networks created in and around the development of venture philanthropy in the UK and elsewhere. She is working to bring together researchers to critically examine the spread of "Teach For/First" programmes in Europe and further afield. Emilee welcomes anyone related to, and/or interested in, learning more about this research to get in contact with her.
