OtherWise strives to provide critical perspectives on research and education, explore different ways of learning and increase the diversity of approaches to research. Given the success of last year, we are organizing a second edition of the hands-on training on alternative research methods in February 2020. In the training you will experiment with research methods that are not often thought in university. Here you will be provided the space to experiment and practice with these methods. During the training we will address several questions:

In this hands-on course, you will become familiar with a variety of alternative research methods which can be used in inclusive, participatory research that is sensitive to its societal context. You will experiment with research methods in which you can collect information via storytelling or visual and audio data.
