Baroutsis, Aspa and Thomson, Pat and Riddle, Stewart (2019) Concluding thoughts, provocations and speculations on education research and media. In: Education research and the media: challenges and possibilities. Taylor & Francis (Routledge), Abingdon, United Kingdom, pp. 180-189. ISBN 978-0-8153-5586-1


Rather than write a conclusion which attempts to arrive at some kind of certainty and finality, in this chapter, we try to raise issues, ask questions and pose problems, and engage in a respectful dialogical response. Our responses take the form of an asynchronous conversation via a three handed dialogue, framed by two questions: ‘How are academics, now expected by policy and their institutions, to take their work to wider publics?’, and ‘How can educational researchers operate in this new and rapidly changing environment?’ Each of our lines of thought points to the need for more explicit explorations of what kind of research agenda there might be about mediatisation and how we might bring theoretically informed methodologies and methods together to explore key questions in the field of education research and media.
