The recent stage of my EU ‘sojourn’ has been fascinating and enjoyable. I used my biographic narrative expertise to interpret a number of interviews from health professionals, working in GP Practices in the north of England, uncovering where informal learning takes place in their workplaces. The NHS changes, I discovered, are making big differences to working life – previous ‘spaces’ for sharing ideas and discussing practice are being slowly eroded, leaving a need for an alternative of some kind – perhaps our online EU ‘Help seeking’ tool! For those unfamiliar with biographic narrative, Tom Wengraf, author the best selling book Qualitative Research Interviewing (Sage 2001) has agreed to share a very short overview – available here: Quick Outline Sketch of BNIM-14. My work on the interviews gave me valuable insights now workshops are running with health professionals. The first one explored existing professional networks, the second one was about co-designing their own ‘ideal’ network, and the final one will run in the autumn, when a more developed tool will be available. Empirical work is really exciting!
Is it only me who didn’t know there is a facility in Word using Office 365 to transcribe audio files to text? So useful and about 97% accurate on the memo recording file I transcribed @NatStewartBU #BUDoctoralCollege @DebbieHolley1 @morleydawn1 @EvanTeijlingen @iresearch— Tanya Andrewes PGR (@AndrewesTanya) May 10, 2021
Thank you for sharing your experiences Tanya. I agree time out is so important, and this needs to be built into our daily routines. Here is my early morning walk picture... twitter.com/AndrewesTanya/…
