Visual Research Methods Workshop

5th December 2018, 10AM-4PM; University of Hertfordshire, College Lane, Hatfield, AL10 9AB

About the Workshop

The workshop will focus on the challenges of working with visual methods in social science research relating to health, public health or social care. We will take a critical and discursive approach to the topic and encourage participants to bring their own questions and issues. We will draw on our own work using visual methods in funded research to share with participants how the methods work (or not!) in the real world of applied health and care research.

Who should attend?

Postgraduate research students, novice and more experienced academic researchers working/studying in social science, health/public health or social care departments.

What will the workshop cover?

  • A critical approach to selecting visual research methods;
  • Visual methods in a mixed methods study;
  • Ethical issues and informed consent: developing processes, GDPR, archiving data, publishing/using visual data;
  • Coding and analysis

The workshop leaders each have more than 20 years’ experience conducting health/care research using social science approaches. They have used visual research methods in a number of major projects involving participants from across the life course and supervise postgraduate research students using visual methods in a range of studies.
