Application forms should be completed by 10 am Monday, 25 October 2021. Successful applicants will be notified week commencing Monday, 1 November 2021.
We are pleased to welcome Dr Ann Borda as a guest lecturer for this Methods Workshop. Ann is the Participatory Health Lead in the Co-design Living Lab for Digital Health in the Centre for Digital Transformation of Health at the University of Melbourne. She is a Fellow of the Australasian Institute of Digital Health, Honorary Senior Research Associate at University College London, and sits on the policy committee of the Climate and Health Alliance. Ann formerly held collaborative positions in JISC and at the Science Museum London. Her research spans living lab and citizen science methods, and emerging participatory practices in digital health and culture.
There is an increasing presence in research incorporating participatory approaches to the production of knowledge. Participatory research is a range of methods framed within ideological perspectives. Its fundamental principles are that the subjects of the research become involved as partners in the process of the enquiry, and enacted through a set of social values. Participation can be classified by various degrees of involvement. Participatory activities can be expressed through various methods and approaches, such as co-design, citizen science, crowdsourcing, living labs, participatory action research and community-based participatory research, among others.
This session is directed to researchers and staff at the University of Cambridge interested in participatory research design, with a particular focus on technology-supported participation, and digital tools and methods to enhance research participation. In addition to practical exercises in methodological approaches, there will also be an opportunity for explicit reflection on how digital tools and platforms can both enable and constrain participatory research.
