A 20 minute podcast that explains Martyn Hammersley's framework for critiquing ethnographic research, and then argues why it may be valuable in critical appraisals of other forms of educational and social enquiry, too.

2. Whether and how we can 'see' practices as ethnographers
We don't claim to reach final answers on these issues, but hopefully provide a useful starting point for further discussion!

This is a podcast designed to help students understand why ontology and epistemology are important in social science research. It uses the idea of listening to music and asking a simple question that opens up lots of possibilities depending on the perspective (ie. ontology and epistemology) we adopt.
