Lunchtime Research Forum

About:

March30: Pat Feely will be presenting “I’ve Given Up Trying to Find a Quiet Spot”: Adult Beginner Guitarists Self-Regulated Learning Challenges on Wednesday, March 30th from 12:30-1:30. Here is Pat's abstract: 

 

The purpose of this study was to explore the self-regulated musical learning challenges reported by adult beginner guitarists, to understand how those challenges are negotiated, and to proffer ways of instruction that align with and support those challenges. The six dimensions of self-regulated learning identified by McPherson and Zimmerman (2002) were used as a priori topologies (LeCompte & Preissle, 1993) for coding. Participants from a community guitar orchestra responded to three practice reflection questions weekly over a twelve-week interval. Data indicated that most participants were intrinsically motivated, yet persistent disruptions hindered them from successfully managing their practice time and environment. Possible methods of instruction that take into consideration the life stage challenges faced by adult learners are explored.

About:

SOGSIM is excited to bring back the Lunchtime Research Forum! This semester we will be going virtual to accommodate our community near and far. The forum is a space for graduate students to share research or research ideas and receive feedback from peers. This is a great opportunity to not only share your research in a comfortable environment and get feedback, but to meet people across the school of music! Stay tuned for updates about Lunch Forum for next semester.

All forums will be held virtually over Zoom this semester on Wednesdays from 12:30-1:30. 

Once the presenters are scheduled, the SOGSIM Lunchtime Research Forum Coordinator, Donna Janowski, will email RSVP links to attendees. 

Further questions or comments about the Forum? Get in touch with Donna at: djanowsk@uwo.ca

 

 

 

 

 

 

Prospective
Presenters:

We are hoping to have students from all departments participate! If you are interested in presenting, please visit the SOGSIM website and fill out a short Google form.

 

For the forums this year, we want to try something new! We are offering two presentation options: 

  1. Formal video—For students who have “fully formed” research, we would like to provide the opportunity to record a professional video. SOGSIM will take care of securing recording equipment and a quiet location to film high-quality videos. These videos will be viewed at the lunchtime forums, but can also be included on students’ professional platforms, websites, or job applications. 

  2. Sharing is caring—We would like to hear from students who have research ideas, but would like to get suggestions and feedback as they move forward. These presentations would not be previously recorded and students can come and share their drafts, research-in-progress or ideas.
