Gastvortrag von Prof. Dr. Lelia Green

Das imwk Augsburg freut sich auf den Besuch von Prof. Dr. Lelia Green von der Edith Cowan University in Perth, Australien. Am 15.11.2016 von 17:30 bis 19:00 Uhr findet ihr öffentlicher Vortrag zum Thema "From teenagers to toddlers: co-researching children online“ in Raum D 2108 (Phil.-Soz.) statt.

Lelia Green is Professor of Communications at Edith Cowan University (ECU) in Perth, Western Australia and leads the ECU node in the Marie Curie Actions, International Research Staff Exchange Scheme (IRSES), “Narratives in health communication – a multi-disciplinary approach to strengthen understanding of the roles and uses of narratives in conveying health information and changing health behaviours” project. She has won and led over AUD$ 2 million-worth of competitive grant funding at the intersections of health and communications.

Lelia Green has been researching the internet in Australian family life since 2002 when she was first funded as a co-Chief Investigator on an Australian Research Council Discovery Grant. Since that time, always in collaboration, Lelia has been almost continuously researching children’s online engagement. In 2006, as a member of the International Advisory Panel of the newly-funded EU Kids Online project, Lelia’s horizons were further broadened. In 2015 she was appointed a non-voting Management Committee member of COST Action IS1410: The Digital Literacy and Multimodal Practice of Young Children. Her talk addresses the reverse trajectory of starting with researching the internet use of teenagers, and ending with research into toddlers. This reflects changes in the online world as it has expanded to include even the youngest of children, as well as children in many poorer nations in a ‘mobile first’ context. The presentation addresses some of the opportunities and benefits, as well as the risks and costs, of children’s digital engagement and pays attention to capturing children’s voices and perspectives, and the changing approaches and research methodologies used.
