Learn how to embrace social media


***Read the event blog here***

Should social science researchers embrace social media and, if we do, what are the implications for our methods and practice?

We know that social media tools are increasingly being used to as part of the social sciences. The nature of these tools means that it is a fast changing environment, with new practices emerging all the time. Despite this, there is limited interaction between practitioners or synthesis of different methods. There are also few opportunities to reflect on the implications of social media tools for our subjects of study, methods and ethics. Our network of methodological innovation brings together academics, researchers and research stakeholders in a community of practice with members drawn from the cutting-edge of academia, market research and applied social research.

The network is led by NatCen Social Research, SAGE and the Oxford Internet Institute, and funded by the NCRM. It’s hosted over several different platforms, including Methodspace, Blogspot, Twitter and YouTube, and will run over 12 months.

Arts Based Research

This is a space for Arts-Based Research and it's questions and directions. Ideally a space for researchers working in arts practice I thought it would be a good space to discuss and share the varieties of research being undertaken in creative arts i.e drama, visual arts, media, performance etc. along with any questions, articles or exemplars that participants might like to share.  See More
