THE MATTER OF METHODS IN DESIGN RESEARCH

Seminar|AHO Conference Centre

We wish to invite academic staff and students across all institutes and research centres at AHO to a research seminar about ways of thinking about and framing research methods. In design-related disciplines students and researchers use a wide variety of visual techniques and methods (drawing, sketching, model making, photography, video making, mapping etc.) to think, create, and communicate. However, a major challenge they face is how to reflect on, analyze, and give accounts of the means by which these practices contribute to knowledge making, on an epistemological and ontological level.

Frame Your Methods

Seminar|AHO Conference Centre

Times:  1400 – 1600 Oct 24 and 0900 – 1600 Oct 25 Workshop convener: Henry Mainsah This workshop aims to provide participants with a “hands on” introduction on how to analyze and reflect on the role of the design methods and techniques they use in their everyday research and practice. In design-related disciplines students and researchers use a wide variety of techniques and methods (drawing, sketching, model making, photography, video making, mapping etc.) to think, create, and communicate. However, a major challenge they face is how to reflect on, analyze, and give accounts of the means by which these practices contribute to knowledge making, from a methodological point of view. In this workshop, participants will learn to develop analytical concepts and techniques for reflecting methodologically on the role of visual practices in the production of knowledge in their practice and research.
