Get experience in visual research methods - October 8 at 2 PM in the Inforum

Jennette and I have been going back and forth on the ArtLab approach and we decided to host a visual research workshop for all those interested in exploring the method and delving deeper into their own research topic. The workshop will be based on Gauntlett's approach, as highlighted in the Lego Serious Play Research Project. The workshop will take place on Friday, October 8, from 2 PM to 4 PM, in the Inforum. The room number will be confirmed as soon as possible.

Because Lego is too expensive, at this point, we will be using clay to model and explore our research areas, examining ways to visually represent our areas of interest and what is still unclear to us. After an introduction and the modelling session, we will share and discuss our models with each other, exploring questions such as: why we chose to present our ideas in this way, how the other participants understand our model, and what insights we can derive from this discussion into our research.

We hope that the participants will leave the workshop with: 1) experience with a modelling research method; 2) a better grasp of their research ideas; 3) a clearer sense of how their research might be perceived and interpreted by others.

Because we will be buying the clay ahead of time, we suggest that each participant contribute 1$ to the materials. If you have any suggestions on how to make this workshop more useful or would like to be involved in organizing it, please do not hesitate to let us know. If you intend to participate, please also RSVP at: before Thursday, October 7.
