This two day event for researchers focused on the developing the capacity of staff to undertake effective research with children and young people.
The aim of the course was to introduce research students and early career researchers to key issues involving research with children.
Day 1 was introductory and will cover: approaches to research with children and young people, research ethics with children and young people and child protection in research environments.
Day 2 introduced a range of research methods commonly used for research with children. These are likely to include up to 4 of the following: participatory approaches, creative methods for interviews, secondary data analysis of large datasets, surveys and observation. Each session on day 2 focused on issues in using these methods in research with children.
Each day included the opportunity for questions and discussion and for participants to relate the materials to their own research plans.
