Who Gets to Ask the Questions: The Ethics in/of Cogenerative Dialogue Praxis

Ian Stith, Wolff-Michael Roth


We present cogenerative dialogue as an authentic research tool which, when conducted properly, can address some of the ethical issues inherent in classroom research. To begin with, there is the question of the participation of the researcher in the cogenerative dialogue. Next, we present cogenerative dialogue as an ideal tool to instigate interaction and participation among the participants in classroom research: students, teachers, and researcher. And finally we present cogenerative dialogue as tool to facilitate the discussion of the ethical issues that are part of the research setting (e.g., class). URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0602382
