1. Using creative methods in qualitative data collection
An opportunity to explore a range of creative activities, that help to make visible and expressible what is otherwise difficult to see or put in words. For example, thought processes and decision-making can be observed; and for research into participants' experiences, creative methods yield rich qualitative data as participants reflect more deeply and focus on their emotions and feelings.
The activities in this workshop include ‘diamond 9’, ‘pick a card’ and/or LEGO model building activities. We will evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of various creative activities, consider the practicalities and consequences of implementing them, and explore what constitutes data, what data is generated and how that can be recorded. Finally we will reflect on attendees’ own projects and what these methods could bring to your research.
