Introduction to Phenomenography provides an overview of the phenomenography through both literature and a practical workshop. The course consists of a pre-task, workshop, and post-task. The pre-task asks participants to read given method literature and synthesize the readings into a concise writing about the phenomenography as a research approach. The workshop is a four-hour session consisting of a short briefing on the phenomenography, performing phenemonographic analysis in groups, and reflective discussions. In the post task, participants advance their pre-task writing about the phenomenography and complement it with reflections from the analyses conducted during the workshop.

Learning outcomes

After completing the course the student has an advanced perception of the possibilities and limitations of the research method in question.
