Get Creative! MethodSpace Live Webinar Recording

July 26, 2019 1597

Communicating in visual or multimodal ways allows us to reach people who might not read the words we write. A MethodSpace focus for May was on ways to visualize research ideas as well as findings. In June and July, we are building on these ideas with a focus on Creative and Arts-Based Methods. Find all posts in this unfolding series.

In order to engage in real-time and have a conversation about thought-provoking approaches, MethodSpace is having a live series of webinars. The first one was Get Creative! Research with Pictures & Stories, which appears below.

Methodspace addresses some of the questions we didn’t have time to answer during the webinar in separate posts; the first answer appears HERE.

Watch the first webinar below:
