Comparative methodology and how to build your own
15 January 10.00 – 12.00
Kristina Niedderer, Professor of Design
Methodology is perhaps the most worrying word for any new research student. This session will unpack the idea of methodology in an approachable way. Essentially, methodology is the overall approach that you choose for your research. Different domains have developed many theoretical and practical approaches and methods, which can either be used in their pure form, or in a combination (mixed methods) to fit your own study. Especially for interdisciplinary work, this is of great importance. This session will introduce you to the idea of methodology, and how the use of different methods generates different results.
The session will consist of a presentation and a group exercise to allow you to discuss, explore and internalise some of the issues raised.
For the exercise, please bring a printout of your research question(s), however tentative, to the session.
