Understanding the Research FieldNorthumbria University Session
This session will compare and contrast the different approaches to art & design research undertaken at the universities of Northumbria and Sunderland. The session will be structured around the presentation of a series of 15 minute presentations by students at different stages of their research journey and will facilitate an exploration of the range of methodological approaches employed by our art & design researchers.
Students will be asked to address the following questions:
- What is your key research question - what are you trying to find out/explore/critique/examine?
- How will you do this - what methods/techniques/approach/tools/materials do you use/adopt/exploit?
- What is the main audience for this work- how will you disseminate your findings?
- How will you know if you have succeeded or otherwise?
- What is next?
