The use of Observation and Photography in Academic Research

camera-581126_1280

This workshop explores observation and photography in academic research. Although less widely adopted than a number of other research methods, both of these can offer new perspectives and insights. The workshop will begin by defining these methods in the context of qualitative research. Consideration will also be given to the different approaches that can be taken in applying each method, including in the role given to the subjects of the study. It will then consider a range of academic studies that have used observation or employed photography. Here participants will explore what distinguishes each of these methods from other approaches to the collection of qualitative data, and what their comparative strengths and weakness are. Informed by these insights, this part of the workshop will finish with participants reflecting on what method would be most applicable to their own research.
