Duoethnography is a qualitative research method in which two researchers use their life histories as a lens through which to study a given topic. In this forum, the presenters will first introduce the research method, and then provide examples of projects carried out using duoethnography based on chapters from a recently published book. The presentations will explore duoethnography as a research method, a vehicle for reflection, and as a form of project-based learning.
