Research Seminar: Cyberbullying in post-16 contexts – 23 October

Research Seminar – Cyberbullying in Post-16 Contexts

23 October 2014, 16.30-17.30, Attwood Building A044, City North Campus

We have invited Dean West, a colleague from the EU funded E-Step project, to present his research on cyberbullying in post-16 contexts.  Dean is a final year doctoral researcher in the Centre for Education Studies at the University of Warwick studying for a PhD in Education, as well as a teacher and manager in a sixth form college in the West Midlands. His PhD research focusses on cyberbullying in post-16 contexts, in which he is interested in answering questions surrounding the following areas: prevalence, involvement, impact, and attributions.

Cyberbullying as a research area is a relatively new, but fast-evolving field that requires further investigation, especially in post-16 contexts where there is currently a dearth of academic literature. Through his own research in this area, he will be covering topics such as the background and rationale of the study, the theoretical and philosophical perspectives that have guided the methodology and research design, the results and subsequent analysis, and the impact of a large-scale study to the wider community.

This is an open invitation to any colleagues or students interested in this area of research so please feel free to forward this on.
