This is a six-week course covering creative research methods and ethics in theory and in practice. The course runs for 1.5 hours online each week, from 2-3.30 pm on Wednesdays, with associated readings, videos, exercises to do and online discussions in between the online sessions.

Session 2: enhanced and mobile interviews

Session 3: using comics and animation in research

The course will focus on gathering and analysing data. Exercises will offer hands-on experience, and an online space will be available for discussions and feedback in between the Wednesday sessions.
