Would you like to know more about how to use and theorise image-based methods in your research?
The Open University is offering free, ESRC-funded, on-line advanced training on image elicitation methods.
Aimed at PhD, early career researchers and those seeking to develop their methodological expertise, this on-line training offers a flexible way to enhance understanding of these important social science methods.
The training, delivered in three short modules, will provide opportunities for participants to share their research and explore case studies from contemporary social science research in small groups, facilitated by experienced visual researchers.
Module One; Research visually with 'vulnerable' participants will critically explore concepts of voice, marginality and inclusivity, interrogating current approaches to ethics, representation and anonymity.
Synchronous and asynchronous on-line communication will enable participants to work through theoretical and practical problems inherent in working visually in order to enhance their practice and contribution to this important field.
Each two-week module requires 10 hours of study.
In order to take part in one of the modules, you must complete the pre-registration proforma. The closing date for pre-registration is Friday 25th November 2016.
Places are limited. In order to study on the AIEM programme you must have some research experience. You will need to have access to a good broadband connection and an academic library. Modules will be presented in English and all times are UK GMT/BST.
