Event description
NINE DTP collaborative Advanced Training with Dr Pamela Woolner, Dr Jill Clark, Dr Helen Burns, Dr Eric Fletcher & Prof Elaine Hall.

About this Event

The main aim of this advanced training is to focus on the use of visual methods to mediate interactions and build understandings within social science research. We will focus on different types of visual prompts and the processes associated with them; how they can be used within data collection, analysis and presentation stages of the research process. We aim to raise the profile of visual methodology and build capacity across the social sciences in the effective use of this advancing field.

These aims will be achieved through a two day training event, which will involve contributions from a variety of researchers who use visual activities and methods, focusing explicitly on different aspects of data collection, ethics, synthesis, analysis and dissemination. These sessions will draw on diverse examples from presenters' research, locating the process of 'visually mediated encounters', and the data generated, within visual research methodology and social science epistemology. This training will provide jargon free exemplars of sufficient critical insight, both theoretical and practical, to engage and inspire participants from across the social sciences to adapt high quality visual methods to their particular research situation. There will be opportunities for participants to undertake practical application of the theory in workshop sessions using a variety of qualitative and quantitative based visual approaches to data generation, analysis and communication.

You must attend both days of the workshop, which will be held at Newcastle University. Day one runs from 10:00-17:00 and day two runs from 08:45-15:30.

This course is free to students from Durham, Newcastle, Northumbria, Queens Belfast, Sunderland, Teesside and Ulster Universities who should use this event to book a place.

For non-regional students, the two-day workshop costs £60. This includes lunch, and tea/coffee on each day, but does not include accommodation, travel or an evening meal.
