WHC Creative Methods Workshop
This 3 day workshop has been organised by the Well-being, Health and Communities (WHC) Pathway but is open to all ESRC and non-ESRC funded students within the seven WRDTP institutions regardless of interdisciplinary Pathway.
This course introduces arts-based methods, embodied methods, research using technology, multi-model research and transformative research frameworks such as participatory and activist research. Any or all of these techniques can be used alongside more conventional research methods and are often particularly useful when addressing more complex research questions. You will have the opportunity to try applying some of these methods in practice, and attention will be paid to ethical issues throughout. The course will include plenty of practical advice and tips on using creative methods in research.
Students will gain a good understanding of creative research methods and lean how and when to use creative methods, alongside more conventional methods, in research.
