Bridging perspectives of parents, teachers and co-researchers: methodological reflections on cross-cultural research
Abstract:The purpose of this paper is to discuss how researchers situated themselves and how they learned to effectively communicate each other throughout the process of collaborative cross-cultural research. Co-researchers, with diverse cultural backgrounds (Korean and Caucasian-American), reflect on the meanings and implications of their collaborative experiences. The implications of multicultural collaboration in qualitative research, including challenges and benefits, are presented. In the paper the authors introduce themselves as researchers, overview the cross-cultural research that the authors collaborated on, detail the method used to reflect on the collaborative research, and highlight areas or themes that seemed particularly salient in the research experience.
