Neste trabalho investigamos como são as interações discursivas que podem levar à promoção da enculturação científica durante uma atividade de trabalho de campo, relacionado à Ecologia, em uma área reflorestada. Várias perspectivas do campo da linguagem e ensino de Ciências nortearam este trabalho, dentre elas as pesquisas que consideram que a prática da argumentação em aula seja essencial para aprender Ciências, já que argumentar é inerente ao próprio discurso científico. Concebendo a Ciência como cultura, outras pesquisas discutem a importância de se envolver os alunos em atividades nas quais eles aprendam linguagens, regras, valores, conceitos da Ciência e como ela é construída ao longo do tempo, de forma a se posicionarem criticamente diante de situações que envolvam tomadas de decisões respaldadas em conhecimento científico. Contudo, raras atividades desenvolvidas em espaços não formais de ensino são amparadas pelos pressupostos apontados anteriormente, como por exemplo, os trabalhos de campo em ambientes naturais. Versando sobre os aspectos mencionados, foi elaborada uma atividade subdividida em três episódios: contextualização do trabalho de campo, realização do trabalho de campo e discussão dos dados coletados no trabalho de campo. O primeiro e o terceiro episódios ocorreram no Laboratório de Ensino de Biologia e o desenvolvimento do trabalho de campo ocorreu dentro da Floresta da USP...

Introduction to ethnographic practices: the study of and communicating about culture. Reading and discussion of classics of anthropological field work, contemporary critiques, and innovative practices. From the course home page: Course Description This course involves reading about how to do fieldwork, practicing fieldwork, reading ethnographies and about ethnography, and practicing writing ethnography. We will move from an overview of ethnography, to getting into the field, to writing fieldnotes, to analyzing data and writing a short ethnographic piece. We will, as you must in doing fieldwork and writing ethnographies, intersperse reading with fieldwork to theoretically inform both the fieldwork and the writing. The ethics of fieldwork and obligations to research subjects are discussed throughout the semester.

Fieldworkers typically collect data in a rather ad-hoc way during fieldwork, often leading to patchy and highly variable metadata quality at the time of submission to a digital repository. It can be very difficult or even impossible to reconstruct some of this information at a later date, yet these resources are often unique and unrepeatable records of highly significant events collected at considerable expense of researcher time, effort and resources. From the repository perspective, lack of metadata (including preservation metadata) can have serious implications not only for ingestion into a repository, but also for subsequent archival management and dissemination of archival information. This project aimed to extend the scope of the OAIS model to facilitate sustainable data collection and description of digital objects from the time of creation during fieldwork, and to integrate this workflow with repository ingestion, management, and dissemination requirements.

O tema deste artigo é a experiência pessoal do antropólogo durante o trabalho de campo levado a cabo noutra cultura. É apresentada através de dois casos: o primeiro, a viajem de Bronislav Malinowski a Mailu e às ilhas Trobriand, e a segunda, a experiência de Kirsten Hastrup na Islândia. O meu material-base é o livro de Malinowski Diary in thestrict sense of the term (utilizei o texto integral publicado em polaco em 2001). Utilizei o texto para analisar a experiência de interacção com pessoas de outra cultura, bem como para ilustrar como o Diário influenciou a antropologia contemporânea. Fiz tal através da comparação entre as experiências de trabalho de campo de Malinowski e de Hastrup. Tentei apresentar o seu ‘estar lá’ não só como um fenómeno cultural, mudando de acordo com os discursos de cada época, mas também como uma parte do trabalho que ilumina dilemas epistemológicos e éticos cruciais na antropologia.; O tema deste artigo é a experiência pessoal do antropólogo durante o trabalho de campo levado a cabo noutra cultura.

Abstract publicado em: Eur J Public Health. 2015; 25(Suppl 3): 417. doi:10.1093/eurpub/ckv176.118. Disponível em: http://eurpub.oxfordjournals.org/content/eurpub/25/suppl_3/ckv176.118.full.pdf; The participation of fieldwork teams is key to successful surveys implementation. Thus, the Portuguese National Health Examination Survey (INSEF) is involving fieldwork teams in survey quality control processes. The aim of this presentation is to report a midterm evaluation's results of the internal quality control concerning participants' recruitment strategies and how these influence participation rate. A focus group discussion was carried out with fieldwork teams (nurses, laboratory technicians and administrative staff) and regional coordinators in the North, Center and Algarve regions. Each focus group had between 8 to 14 participants with an average age of 47 years and a long professional experience with an average of 22 years. A slideshow presentation fostered the discussion of the survey process: strengths and weaknesses of training, recruitment, informed consent, physical exam, blood collection, interview and logistical issues. It also explored the teams' perceptions of local cultural attitudes and the strategies used within the fieldwork. A thematic content analysis was performed. According to fieldwork teams...

Métodos de ensino baseados em atividades de campo proporcionam aproximação entre o objeto estudado e o indivíduo. Para assimilação do saber geográfico, é importante que sejam considerados tanto o conhecimento do aluno como a realidade que o envolve, devendo estes servir de referência para o estudo do espaço geográfico. O campo constitui ótimo ambiente de ensino, além de promover maior socialização de grupos. Nesse quadro favorável aos trabalhos de campo, realizamos pesquisa sobre atividades de campo desenvolvidas na disciplina Geografia em escolas e colégios da rede pública e particular de Ponta Grossa, Estado do Paraná. O principal objetivo da pesquisa é investigar a realização ou não de trabalhos de campo em Geografia, em estabelecimentos de ensino público e particular, nos níveis de ensino fundamental e médio do município. As informações foram coletadas por meio de questionário enviado aos professores responsáveis. Como resultado, verificou-se que mais de 50% dos professores aplicam metodologias de campo no ensino de Geografia. Mas também são apontadas inúmeras dificuldades para não-realização de atividades de campo com os alunos, que incluem: (a) aspectos de ordem financeira dos alunos, (b) a responsabilidade que o professor assume ao levar o aluno para fora do ambiente escolar...

The main purpose of this paper is to approach some issues concerning the intersubjectivity in fieldwork. The field experience my paper deals with, took place when I was researching for my Ph.D. in cultural anthropology. Fieldwork was conducted on the Portuguese-Spanish border area, in between 2001 and 2003.During the fieldwork process I was required to move across the border and assume, on a daily basis, my condition as national citizen like half of my informants and foreigner like the other half. The relationship with the subjects and the way they “built” me as a researcher and cope with my presence, often led me to reconsider decisions made in advance and redefine strategies taken as methodological adequate and safe. One situation that was particularly relevant on the level of researchers’ identity was caused by the double gaze subjects launched on the anthropologist: being Portuguese like 'us' (anthropology at home) or being Portuguese like 'them' (anthropology abroad). This aspect persisted throughout the fieldwork and made that period a time of conflict, mainly on the epistemological level but also at personal one. Within the framework of reflection this paper looks on the interactional process through which the knowledge is acquired...

World Oral Literature Project Workshop 2010; The Mudugar are an indigenous community living in Attappady, South India. Having been displaced from the forest and resettled in the valley, they are now undergoing major transformation, including the corruption of their unique indigenous knowledge systems. It was in this context, and with the aim to create a repository of indigenous culture, that the Mudugar-Kurumbar Research Centre was established. In this paper, I will discuss the steps and challenges faced by the Centre in documenting and storing cultural knowledge. These challenges include working with the community (and against the weather) in fieldwork, where objections from some community members due to suspicion and inhibition adversely affected the documentation process. Community members also assisted in logging and classifying documents, and the Centre respects the sentiments of the members by using Mudugar words for nomenclature. The documents are made available to internal (community members) and external agencies (research scholars and public), and we are disseminating video documents to the public by collaborating with a local TV channel.

Interview one: in a buffalo shed under the house where we live. How did I come to be interested in working among the Gurungs? Why did I want to be an anthropologist at all? What were my first impressions of the village and what were the difficulties in my first fieldwork in 1968-70? What was the main theme of my first fieldwork? What were the general conclusions from my first study (which led to a Ph.D. and book)? To what extent was I right in my predictions about the future? What have been the major changes in the village over the last thirty years? (Economic changes.) What have been the major changes in the village over the last thirty years? (Cultural and religious changes.) Dilmaya and her family; the people we live with What other groups live in the village? What does 'the West' look like from the village? Interview two: sitting below the village with the backdrop of the Annapurna Himalayas. Where did the Gurungs originally come from? What is the long-term history of the Gurungs since they left China? How did they come to be recruited into the Gurkha regiments? What was their pattern of work from the l970's, especially as migrant labourers? What is the nature of their work abroad? What are the pressures that drive them out of the villages? Why are they an interesting group to study? (Ancient shamanism meets global capitalism.) What really attracts me about the Gurungs as a people to spend my time with?; These reflections on work among the Gurungs were filmed in the autumn of 2000 AD. Alan Macfarlane talked to camera in order to capture some of the reasons why he ended up doing fieldwork in the Himalayas. He reflects on some of the major changes and pressures in the village of Thak since his first visit in 1968. He also gives a brief account of the history of the Gurungs and their current predicament in the face of global capitalism. This was filmed on one-chip digital video. The clips should be viewed over broadband.

As críticas do projeto Writing Culture, endereçadas ao texto etnográfico, além de não atingirem o método antropológico por excelência, a pesquisa de campo nos moldes malinowskianos, ajudaram a disseminá-la nas humanidades e nas artes. A pesquisa de campo tradicional, contudo, mostra-se inadequada aos novos temas de investigação da antropologia em um mundo mais complexo, integrado e frgmentado produzido pela globalização. Este trabalho, originalmente escrito para uma conferência, sugere a reinvenção do imaginário da pesquisa de campo antropológica a partir de sua apropriação pelo teatro e pelo cinema. Baseado no trabalho do cenógrafo venezuelano Fernando Calzadilla, o autor propõe a substituição do distanciamento e da limitação espacial da mise-en-scène malinowskiana pela cumplicidade entre observador e observado e pela pesquisa em campos multilocalizados.; Writing Culture criticism, addressed to ethnographic text, did not affect the anthropological method itself, fieldwork as conceived by Malinowski. Furthermore, this criticism helped to spread Malinowskian fieldwork to humanities and arts. Traditional fieldwork, however, does not suit to the new topics of anthropological inquiry in a more complex, integrated and fragmented world produced by globalization. This paper...

Based on the experience of doctoral level seminar courses, this article discussesthe role of fieldwork in the construction, deconstruction and reconstruction of geographical objects of investigation. It is argued that one of the main problems encountered by postgraduate students is the lack of reflection on the construction or reconstruction of their objects of research. This causes them to neglect discussing fieldwork method, before and during research, and consequently to ignore deconstructing and reconstructing the objects of geographical investigation and so do not undertake the necessary discussion of internal tensions within the discipline.; O presente artigo apresenta reflexões sobre o trabalho de campo na construção/desconstrução/reconstrução de objetos de investigações geográficas, a partir da experiência de seminário-disciplina em nível de doutorado. Argumenta-se que um dos principais problemas dos geógrafos em formação é o caráter pouco reflexivo na construção ou reconstrução do objeto de pesquisa e que esta característica tem reflexos na ausência de considerações sobre o trabalho de campo, antes e durante a realização da pesquisa, no estímulo à desconstrução/reconstrução de objetos de investigações geográficas que incluam a necessária discussão sobre as tensões internas à própria disciplina.

Various factors have an impact on the development of the clinical reasoning skills of occupational therapy students during their training. The aim of this study was to investigate how the interpersonal communication skills of the supervisors impact on their students' ability to learn clinical reasoning skills during their education in the physical field. Thirty final year students at the University of Pretoria and 14 supervisors from six different hospitals formed the study sample. A mixed research design was employed. Data were collected by means of focus groups and one-on-one interviews conducted with fieldwork educators and students on their inter-subjective experience of supervision. It was then analysed by a clinical psychologist using the Interpersonal Pattern Analysis diagnostic instrument, and finally compared with the grades students obtained for their clinical reasoning skills in the final practical exam in the physical field. The findings of this study indicated that the supervisors of students who received good grades, were predominantly linear in their approach, showed limited empathy and confirmation, were rigid in their expectations and solved problems effectively. Supervisors of students who received lower grades were mainly circular in their approach...

As part of the occupational therapy undergraduate programme at the University of the Western Cape (UWC), students carry out group research projects while in their fieldwork placements. The purpose of the Research module is to introduce them to basic qualitative research methods. Following the progress of a group of students in a community fieldwork setting as an example, this article is a commentary on how they use the steps of the community process as a guideline to identify possible research questions. The author will highlight the process that students follow to refine their research questions, the support they require to identify priority problems, the barriers that students face while conducting research in fieldwork, and the positive outcomes for students and the community. In conclusion the community process provided the students with a theoretical guideline, specifically the needs assessment and analysis steps of the process in order for them to conceptualise a research question within a community fieldwork setting.

BACKGROUND: Community development has been identified as an approach that occupational therapists can use to make a unique contribution to the health of communities. There is however limited research that addresses the practical application that occupational therapists need to use when engaged in community development. This includes community development's most important phase of community entry which is defined as a prelude to any action that will take place in true partnership with the community PURPOSE: This paper explores the experiences offinal year occupational therapy students using community entry skills during community fieldwork practice METHODS: An auto-ethnographic approach was used to explore students' experiences of the use of community entry skills within community development. Data collected included the use of the students' reflective fieldwork journals, a narrative and a focus group. All data collected was critically analysed through a process of thematic analysis in order to explore the students' experiences of the use of community entry skills during community fieldwork practice FINDINGS: The findings of this study highlight that the process of community entry is a subjective experience that requires mindfulness and awareness in becoming a part of the community. This allows professionals to interact with the community and its members and it gives rise to the understanding that one receives when working in a community IMPLICATIONS: Recommendations are made regarding the support of and preparation of Occupational Therapists in the field of community development.

Charlotte Danielson developed a framework for teaching to assist novice educators. Her framework considers four domains, namely Planning and Preparation, The Classroom Environment, Instruction and finally Professional Responsibilities. This article describes the adaptation of Danielson's Framework in the development of a new fieldwork setting for third year occupational therapy students. The description of the process that was followed illustrates how the four domains were used to guide the development of a new fieldwork setting, which would meet the requirements of the university as well as the needs of a group of six third year occupational therapy students who were doing their first fieldwork practice in this new setting. The conclusion shows that this Framework proved to be a suitable one to guide the process of developing a fieldwork setting.

The article deals with four research-related ethical questions that stem from the author's experiences in fieldwork. The author employs the liberationist tradition as a sounding board in her reflection. This tradition gives rise to the ethical questions that she deals with, among other influences, and also works as a lens through which she navigates the ethical dilemmas. She argues that such ethical reflection is timely because of the increasing interest in ethnographic methods in theology and theological ethics. The liberationist lens - which is consciously biased in its choice of socially marginalised people and groups as interlocutors and is geared towards just social transformation - offers a useful approach to interrogating fieldwork ethics, also for scholars operating outside of the field of (liberation) theology. Besides the key contribution of the article, that is, reflecting on the relevant ethical questions related to the research, the author suggests that a wider and more systematic usage of ethnographic tools could benefit the liberationist tradition, which indeed emphasises the importance of lived experience, at this point in time, when many of those writing in the liberationist tradition are full-time academics.
