The Center for Video Ethnography and Discourse Analysis in Educational Research (CVEDA) supports research, scholarship, and dialogue on language, culture, social processes, literacy, and learning across educational settings through video ethnography and discourse analysis.
CVEDA embraces a broad range of perspectives.. This builds a community of scholars who learn from each other, gaining insights for their own research, and appreciating others’ initiatives. Our vision is for this learning community to actively address some of the world’s most intractable problems.
Part of the School of Teaching and Learning of the College of Education and Human Ecology of The Ohio State University, The Center for Video Ethnography and Discourse Analysis in Educational Research opened its doors in September 2011. A part of the School of Teaching and Learning, CVEDA builds on a rich, deep history.
Collaboration and data sharing are at the heart of CVEDA. From ideas through research, publication, presentation and application we connect and support scholars at all levels.
