Dr Marc Bush, Visiting Professor, School of Health
This is an interactive session looking at the ways that the social researcher can bring creative and non-traditional tools into their investigations and lines of inquiry. We will also explore the benefit of using these tools with specific research participants and communities. There will be an opportunity for participants to familiarise themselves with different tools (including paint, lego, sound-scaping and online avatars) and have an opportunity to test them out in the session. Additionally, there will be time and space to reflect on the ethical and practical risks associated with their use. The workshop will benefit researchers who are thinking about the methods and tools they may want to use in the field as well as those looking to expand their current practice and skills. All participants should come to the session in clothes that they don’t mind getting paint on, and with an open mind.
Suitable for students, early or mid-career researchers, engagement officers. A basic understanding of research methods is preferable but not essential.
