Research

Fiona researched and developed the interactive nonfiction narrative (INN) approach to enhancing research participation with young children.In January 2016 I completed my PhD as a ‘series of papers’ in early childhood education research ethics, entitled Enhancing young children’s meaningful participation in research ethics processes through an interactive approach.The thesis introduced Interactive Nonfiction Narrative (INN) as an innovative tool for obtaining informed consent from 3- and 4-year-old children. Based on a story (narrative) of the research, it employed reading strategies such as sustained shared thinking and dialogic reading, and used touch-screen technologies (interactive) to deliver information about a research project (nonfiction). An interpretive multiple case design was used to evaluate children’s understanding of the research as presented through the INN. Children were found to understand many of the aspects of the research purpose and their rights as participants. Results of the cross-case analysis also suggested that the informed consent process is not only an essential component of children’s rights, but can add to the quality of early childhood research and has the potential to enhance research outcomes with young children. This research focused primarily on young children's meaningful participation in the informed consent process. However, it also speaks about enhancing young children's participation in research more generally and offers support to researchers wanting to move toward a more rights-based approach to early childhood research.
