"This online seminar explores the use of civic hackathon events as co-learning spaces to support peer research projects. It builds on work we are currently doing in our role as Learning Partner for the Youth Endowment Fund’s Peer Action Collective. In this project we used a hackathon to co-produce the first prototype framework for a developmental learning inquiry, collaborating with young potential peer researchers to ensure this was set up to learn about what was most important to them. Session 1 will be run as a live mini-hackathon lasting 90 mins. In this space we will set a challenge: to co-create a prototype framework for understanding peer research. Participants will be asked to reflect on the spaces where they work, their experiences of and hopes for peer research and the themes which link their ideas to those of others in the session. We will close by voting for reviewing and prioritising themes to include in our shared prototype framework.
This will be followed by a 30 minute break.
Session 2 will start with a fuller story about how we have used the Hackathon approach in the project, the limitations and what was enabled. This will be followed by a session in which we will work with those who attend to reflect on their own experience and to discuss together possible ways in which the approach can be modified and applied in other research contexts. This will last 60 minutes."
