Five years of qualitative innovation - NCRM Autumn School 2010
Five years of qualitative innovation: an NCRM showcase
The National Centre for Research Methods held its sixth residential training event for early career researchers on 3-5 November 2010 at Jury's Inn Southampton. The NCRM Autumn School in 2010 was a celebration of some of the qualitative work conducted under the remit of NCRM over the last five years, focusing particularly on methodological innovations relating to researching space, place and mobility; on visual methods; and on the use of sensory data. Participants were introduced to a range of examples of innovative qualitative developments and were encouraged to think about what these might potentially offer to their own research. This annual event provides a forum for bringing together early career researchers from across NCRM as well as beyond, and provides an opportunity to explore methodological developments with researchers from diverse disciplinary and methodological backgrounds.
