P573: Active cultures: They're not just for yogurt

Gautam Bhattacharyya (Clemson University, USA)

Ethnography and ethnomethodology are two related, but distinct, theoretical frameworks. While ethnography aims to understand what constitutes the culture of a specific group of people, ethnomethodology presumes the existence of a culture and aims to elucidate how people make sense of their routine activities so that they may function in that culture. By using examples from science education research, including that performed by my group, this presentation will focus on the origins of the research paradigms, the basic theoretical features of each, and the types of research questions that are appropriate for the frameworks.
