QR:  Using creative methods to collect data in social research

Using creative methods to collect data in social research


The overall aim of this workshop is to explore creativity within research and to identify opportunities to use creative methods within the research process.


Workshop content:

In this interactive workshop we will explore what creativity is, why we should be creative in our PhD research and how we can introduce creativity and creative methods in our existing paradigms and methods. Participants will be actively experimenting with “pick a card” and “diamond 9” activities, photo elicitation, and the process of building models and creating representations. These activities and methods have been found particularly helpful in yielding rich qualitative data and thus provide a deeper insight into research participants’ experiences.



Workshop delivery:

Nicole uses a virtual learning environment to support and enhance collaboration, learning, teaching and research. It allows Nicole to share and manage resources, to enable communication and group work and to foster collaborative learning. Nicole offers interactive, facilitated courses via Zoom or in person often delivered in collaboration with partners.
