CARM workshop

In connection with the annual conference on Conversation Analysis, we are organizing a CARM-workshop run by professor Elizabeth Stokoe (Loughborough University, UK).

Conversation Analytic Role-play Method

This workshop is intended for CA researchers and practitioners who want to learn about CARM and its use in training professionals to have effective conversations with the people they interact with. It will cover the development of CARM and problems with traditional forms of role-play training. We will also discuss how to gain accreditation for CARM for Continuing Professional Development, as well as how to use CARM as an accredited CARM Affiliate. The workshop will provide examples of its use in a variety of workplace settings, including mediation, police-suspect investigative interviews and medical interaction, and will also involve discussion of CARM’s use in new settings. We will also spend some time thinking about not just CARM for spoken interaction but also for an organization’s written communication with potential and current clients, customers, and so on, on websites, leaflets and letters.

The workshop will be a mix of mini-lectures, practical activities and exercises, including hands-on work with recorded conversation. All materials will be provided. The workshop will mostly focus on ‘what CARM is’ with examples of the method in use. We will also look at the technical side of building CARM workshops using relevant multimedia technology.
