This 2-day workshop will provide postgraduate students with an opportunity to understand the research process in new ways. The workshop will focus on three areas that are traditionally subject to less scrutiny in postgraduate curriculums – 1) understanding the self as a researcher and power, 2) using creativity in research and 3) building strong, effective collaborations with non-academic partners to improve the quality, visibility, and impact of research.
The workshop will assist participants to understand what good research looks like in practice in a space that will foster critical and creative discussion, learning and debate that is often not offered through traditional graduate research methods curriculum. Training in these areas will better prepare students to conduct effective field research and to analyse data robustly.
The workshop will be of direct relevance to students across the social sciences using qualitative methods for their research projects but may also be of interest to those undertaking quantitative methods in social science and health.
Entry (no or almost no prior knowledge)
