This seminar will present the work of a study in which the relationships between epistemic stance and culture were examined. Epistemic stance is a personal theory one holds in relation to knowledge and knowing. The framing of the study and methodology were informed by critical realist ideas. This added to the richness of this quantitative exploration of potentially formative cultural communities and experiences for academics. Over 500 PhD students and academic staff from four universities across eight disciplines participated. The cultural variables explored in relation to epistemic stance were: gender, age, discipline, institution, status, ethnicity, religion, and parent socioeconomic status. Findings indicate that we need to look beyond current discipline to understand groupings within academia. It will be good to discuss the possible implications for how we approach multidisciplinary work, which is at the core of the Centre for Research on Learning and Innovation.

Dr Kathryn Bartimote-Aufflick is an honorary associate of the Sydney School of Education and Social Work, is co-chair of the Learning Analytics SIG within the Centre for Research on Learning and Innovation. Her research activities relate primarily in the field of educational psychology in topics such as motivation, self-regulation and metacognition, and epistemic beliefs. She is also interested in methodological development in educational research, particularly the application of critical realism in quantitative research. Kathryn has an emerging engagement in the new field of learning analytics, and in particular is exploring possible points of overlap between educational psychology and research methodology.
