This event has now passed.
In fields of qualitative enquiry the semi-structured interview reigns supreme, closely followed by focus-groups. But are these methods always the most suitable for exploring our research questions? What might they leave unspoken?
In this workshop we'll explore other, more creative research methods. We'll discuss the theoretical basis of creative methods and also their practical application using case studies based on their own work.
This will include incorporating visual elements such as videos and photos, using artefacts (including LEGO® bricks!) and walking. You'll learn about collaborative and co-creative forms of enquiry to provoke your research participants to reflect on and engage more readily with their lived reality.
Please note that this workshop involves a 30 minute walk around campus. We'll be taking an accessible route, but please be sure to bring suitable clothing and footwear.
Due to its interactive nature, online attendance is not possible at this workshop. To make the most of this workshop, we recommend also attending Introduction to Qualitative Research to familiarise yourself with the underpinning ontological and epistemic principles.
