Participatory and Visual Research: a Hands-on Training

Organised by Stichting Otherwise Wageningen

Mon 11 February 2019 until Thu 14 February 2019

OtherWise organizes a hands-on training about participatory and visual research methods. In these four days you will hear theory and stories from the field, get the opportunity to play and practice with visual and participatory methods and learn how to integrate them into a research design.

Although participatory and visual research methods are introduced to students in different university courses, there is little opportunity for practice and in-depth learning. This is what we want offer in this course, so that you feel confident enough to integrate them into your research. Let's make science fun and fair!

Specifically, we want to focus on:

• research methods which bring novel perspectives on the roles and relations of people involved in a research situations (discussing issues of participation, researcher involvement, knowledge sharing dynamics etc.)

• visual methods as a way to gain new perspectives and include more voices in all stages of research

The course will start from theoretical accounts from methodology as philosophy of science on the contributions of different research approaches. These will be followed by practical examples and hands-on exercises where students get to experiment with research designs and methods. Our reflections shall touch upon the entire research process, from determining the studied topic and formulating research question, through data collection, analysis and formulation of conclusions, to dissemination of knowledge.

After the course, there is opportunity for the group to stay in touch in order to help each other within the journey of research.

Participation is based on a 'sliding scale solidarity fee' ranging between 40 and 80 euros. More explanation is given in the registration form below. Lunch and snacks are included in the price
