New Publication: ODU crew on researching classroom affects during COVID

IRQR cover May 2022

Dr. Laura Smithers, Dr. Heidi Fischer, and EPPE Ph.D. student Faith Watrous have a new publication in the International Review of Qualitative Research. The article, “Impasses of Affective Inquiry in Pandemic Times,” chronicles the methodological quandaries of researching learning community classroom affects in the age of COVID-19. They discuss the compromises, fumblings, and in-between spaces of coming to know the collective affects of a high-impact practice when mediated both by Zoom and the expectations of post qualitative inquiry.
