PhD Consortium
May 30, 10.00- 18.00, room 2.15, Design School Kolding
The overall agenda for the day is to focus on the value of peer to peer feedback, and how interdisciplinarity, presentation of your own project, and insights into other research projects can lead to an increased awareness of your own situated knowledge and improve your ability to reflect on your work and develop a Cumulus PhD Network.
We will focus on methodology and the different methodological approaches that you use to collect empirical data.
The day will seek to provide you with an increased awareness about the methods you use, why you use exactly this approach and insight into other methods and approaches through an insight into the other projects.
All with the REDO theme and creating personal impact in mind.
Discussion points:
* What methodologies are used and why?
* How can different kinds of methods combine and enrich each other?
* How are the projects rooted (in theory or practice), how does that influence the choice of method(s) and impact on the final deliverable(s) to the design research project?
The PhD Consortium Day is run by: Yanki Lee, Katrina Dankl and Anne Corlin
