’Learning how to look and listen’: A website that foregrounds professional vision in microanalysis and transcription of video footage

In November 2017, with support from the Spencer Foundation, an interdisciplinary conference was held at Arizona State University that brought together some members of a pioneering generation of scholars with newer scholars, all of whom use video in close descriptive analysis of social interaction. Conference sessions were videotaped and are now available for review in a website. The purpose of the conference was to reflect on patterns of auditory and visual attention—the “noticing practices”—used by scholars in real time as they watch video analytically, in social and educational research. All participants, in individual viewing sessions and in a whole group discussion, viewed and commented on a two minute video clip showing the teaching of physics in a kindergarten-first grade classroom. This brown bag talk will present that clip, for audience discussion, and will review the website’s affordances for making visible the craft knowledge entailed in microanalysis of social interaction by analysts who use video as a primary data source.
