Design your own research methods for a truly diverse audience

Aleks Melnikova, Olena Bulygina, Stephen Tomlinson

What if I were to tell you there are no fixed frameworks, only contextual aid? What if we could use our design toolkit to tailor our own research methods, making sure that it works for eliciting answers from a very diverse, beautiful world around us?

In this workshop, we’ll cover the findings from our most recently completed inclusive research study focussed on understanding how to make the research (as a discipline, as well as a profession) more inclusive for everyone - from moderators to participants.

Those findings will then serve as a base to our interactive session, where people will get an opportunity to tailor their current research methods to be designed in a more inclusive way.

The aim of the game is removing the initial barrier to experimentation within research projects - to make those more inclusive. Overall, in this workshop, participants will learn how to:

  • Refine own research practice and learn how they might amend their current practice (very practical tips)
  • Think about research with outcome in mind, in an actionable way
  • Enjoying the experiment of applying design methodology to research
  • Accessibility of research methods and inclusion within the fabric of research
