Education and learning

The research carry out in this cross-cutting theme studies situations regarding teaching, training, and/or learning from the angle of the communicative interactions between the participating actors. Beyond the differences in theoretical approaches, the shared hypothesis is that knowledge transmission and learning depend strongly on communicative practices and situated semiotic processes. These are largely dependent on the material, cognitive and social characteristics of the situations. For this reason, the methodologies developed rely mostly on the production of videographic recordings, supplemented by other types of data (interviews, ethnographic observations, questionnaires, document collection). Such empirical material allows for detailed interaction analyses, while taking into account the particularities of the contexts. The complex corpora produced are then analyzed using concepts and methods from different approaches: interactional linguistics, conversational analysis, ethnomethodology, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, and didactics.
