“Hanging Out in the Schoolground”: A Reflective Look at Researching Children's Environmental Learning

Karen Malone, Paul Tranter


The authors take a reflective journey to explore the research methodology
utilised in a multi-method, multi-site research study of children’s environmental
learning in schoolgrounds in Australia. Informed by an extensive literature review
and dialogue with researchers around the world, the study constructed a
research design and procedure that could be utilized by practitioner researchers
and academic researchers as the foundation for further research on children’s
learning in schoolgrounds. This paper has the specific task of sharing our
research story and lessons learnt as a conversation to those who intend to
conduct future research with children on schoolground greening projects.
