Walk and Talk: Exploring My Research Methodologies
Walking and talking are a healthful, creative and positive aspect of social life. This event takes advantage of the beauty of the Autumnal environment to host a walking and talking event about and for quality research. Guided by methodological literature about walking methods, those who can make it in person will use the Open University campus for stimulation. Guides to facilitate discussion for walking (and talking) in other venues in parallel will be provided. The aim is to critically reflect on personal experiences of research methodology and to use discussion to stimulate challenging and productive personal reflection on what makes for worthwhile and quality research. After a guided (in both talking and walking) social experience, support in shaping personal reflections will lead to a collective plenary. For those walking and talking remotely, options to join asynchronously and synchronously will be provided to join together in identifying personal and collective ‘takeaways’. Whether established or early career researchers, we hope this event offers something to challenge and stimulate you.
