Agenda, Brief notes on Meeting, Anna welcomed everyone to the call and the start of the SSHRC Grant, Anna provided an overview of the grant by guiding the group through the Snapshot., Grant basics (who is who, timeframe, documents, etc) Goals & Objectives & Deliverables Developing in the field-resources (theoretical & methodological considerations) Data Collection phase Scholarship/Authorship guidelines, *Tara suggested that there may be some opportunities to change some of the basic research questions before we move to data collection. *Anna is open to modifications. *Both Tara and Jonathan will provide educational sessions on ANT & IE to help re(shape) current research questions, and how data will be collected and analysed by the research group. *These sessions will also help develop tools for data collection. *Tara will present on Wed November 14th @ 10 AM AST. Everyone to read ANT homework and develop some questions before the session. *Jonathan presentation TBD. He will provide a session in light of Tara's presentation and needs of research group., Data collection phases: *Tara suggested that blogs and twitter feeds are widely available and could form another source for textual analysis *Keith mention that some of the NB medical students are sharing documents through Google docs and some form their own private Facebook page. *Tara wondered whether there could be potential collaboration with the learning resource centre (simulation and videos) *Olga suggested to have some focus groups and fewer interviews to mimic the group dynamic that students and faculty and staff experience., Anna touched upon the ICMJE scholarship/authorship/ contributor guidelines which will be applied to this grant. Please read these guidelines to avoid potential issues., To listen to the entire 50 minute Meeting, please go to the audio recording node, Next meeting: November 14th 10 AM AST

Jonathan Tummons presenting on "IE, ANT & Medical Education in a Digital Age"
General update: Anna provided a general update on the progress made so far by core team. *Negotiating access to the field (medical school). The research project is on the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee agenda for approval *Core team is currently designing, developing and testing observation and textual research instruments *Core team will travel to Dalhousie Medicine NB to meet with Keith Wilson and develop data collection plan. *Future training sessions will be provided for those participating in data collection
Advisory Panel on Knowledge Mobilization *Anna put forth the idea that in addition to academic papers an advisory panel gets struck to consider concrete contributions *Those not involved in data collection may be interested in developing knowledge mobilization ideas *Blye Frank suggested that this aspect of the grant could be turned into a KT grant. Core team is exploring these possibilities. *Please contact Anna if you are interested in any of the above
Open Access to Grant Data Policy *There was wide support for the draft policy on open access to grant data *issues were raised regarding accessing data for those not using Nvivo and paying for Nvivo licences *We will need to have broad based discussions around the details and operationalization of this policy *team members suggested this policy is an example of KT within the grant and may be an innovation worthy of further development. *Looking for concrete input on the living document. Will tweak as we go along. See snapshot for latest policy version.
Conference Submissions *The core team put in several conference submissions: *Poster: Dalhousie Division of Medical Education conference for March 2013 *Poster: Dalhousie Centre for Learning & Teaching - May 2013 *2 Short communication pieces: 1. overview of study ; 2. open access to grant data model for AMEE - Association for Medical Education in Europe, Fall 2013.
Wed June 26th Brief Notes on Textual Analysis Seminar *Anna presented brief overview of Grant progress: *3 projects underway *Anna will move sociomaterial paper forward and will be in touch. Textual Analysis Overview * Review of research questions * What is ethnography, what is ANT *Discussion of resource list *Overview of the texts / videos to review -categorized as internal to Faculty of Medicine, Dalhousie and external * Everyone to look over list of texts and provide other ones if interested. * Overview of the textual analysis tool (form) * Suggestions of thinking about how to think of texts and how to fill out the template *Emma suggested that perhaps break down some of the questions in the template. *Anna suggested that when doing the analysis and filling out the template be MORE wordy and unpack your observations and analyses. We are building a rich picture of our research topic. *Be reflexive as you are thinking about the texts. Overview of next steps and next meetings. Questions *Issues around keeping the identity of researchers confidential. Even with codes it may become apparent who is who. *Confidentiality issue is complicated - what if researchers want to discuss analysis with others - how would they know who is who. It suppresses the subjective. UPDATE: **No code names will be used**

Agenda: Phase 2 discussion Community Observation Preliminary Coding Phase I Updates on presentations and ongoing papers
Brief Highlights, *Purpose of meeting was to generate coding insights from grant members. Open discussion based on complete set of observational data phase 1 provided several weeks in advance. *Tara thinks its useful to have both GT and ANT analytical approaches. *Anna to connect with Tara on ANT analytical approach to coding. *Jonathan and Shelley to share their draft coding structures. Each interrogated the observations based on grant research questions (practical approach). *Consensus is that having independently coded insights can provide a rich juxtaposition. *Tara suggested that some decisions need to be made sooner or later re generating findings. Do we hone in on some codes or a more open approach? *Olga will bundle texts and photos and make them available to anyone from the grant.
