Building capacity for the use of participatory video in academic research
The participatory video in research network (PV-NET) ran from April 2007 until October 2008. The aim of the network was to build capacity for the use of participatory video (PV) techniques within the social science community in the UK. This was in order to contribute to an increase in the number of researchers interested in and able to use participatory video in their research. In particular the network proposal intended to greatly increase the scope and quality of training available to researchers interested in participatory video. Other aims included stimulating debate on the relationship between participatory video as a practice and social research, and to develop a stronger overview of the variety of applications of participatory video.
The outputs of the project are:
- A statement on the use of participatory video in research;
- A training curriculum for the use of participatory video in research;
- A website and network discussion list;
- Youtube videos of training exercises developed during the training events
Various outputs from the project can be found at the PV-NET project website
PV-NET has also made videos of training exercises available:
- PV-NET showreel is a selection of short videos and reflactions from the PV-NET training sessions in 2007 and 2008
- PV-NET training is a collection of shortt videos from the PV-NET training sessions.
