The Human Interaction Laboratory Data session will meet on Thursday, March 28th 2019 in unit 2614, 200 Boston Ave. Medford, MA 02155.

If you don’t know what a data session is, you can read Saul’s description of learning about Conversation Analytic data sessions, or have a look at this resource from Arizona State University that discusses language and social interaction data analysis sessions from a variety of methodological/disciplinary perspectives:

Data: Dr. Kristen Bottema-Beutel and Dr. Gabrielle Oliviera from Boston College will be presenting data on Question-Response-Evaluation (QRE) sequences in the home interactions of a bilingual child with Autism Spectrum Disorder. We will focus on QRE sequences within interactions between a 5-year old bilingual child with ASD and his parents. In these sequences, the adult poses known-answer questions, the child responds, and the adult evaluates the response. QRE sequences are primarily structured by the questioner (i.e., the parents in our context), so we will focus on the interactive work done by parents to initiate, maintain, and close these sequences.
