WEBINAR: Dr. Brian Gearin: Between the Lines: The Place of Social Capital in Reading Research

Zoom

This presentation will provide a brief history of the concept of social capital, paying special attention to its development in educational research. Using research on reading as a focal point, it will argue that commonly cited limitations of social capital as a concept are likely responsible for the concept’s relatively slow uptake in areas of research that draw on psychological theories and methods. Practical examples will be provided. The presentation will conclude by making tentative recommendations for improving the use of the concept in educational research.

WEBINAR: Batia Ben-Hador: Levels of social capital in organizations

Zoom

Given the broad conceptualization of social capital (SC), several SC categorizations currently exist. In organizations, it is customary to divide the SC into three levels: Personal, Intra-organizational and Extra-organizational SC. I research the three levels together and separately; and investigate the connections to other personal variables and organizational outcomes, quantitively and qualitatively. In the
presentation I talk about some of my studies and implications.

WEBINAR: Prof. Sally Davenport: Social Capital Ideas and the Building of a Mission-Led Research Programme

Zoom

Collaboration, and more of it, is often called for across many walks of life, the assumption being that more diverse contributions will improve outcomes and impact. As an innovation researcher with a scientific background, I have always been interested in the role of collaborative activity to successful (or otherwise) research projects. As we are well aware, the development of social capital is viewed as essential to collaboration. Over the years I have explored what appears to support the building of social capital, particularly when geographical proximity isn’t possible, such as in international collaborations and/or virtual organisations.
