About this product
- DescriptionVisualizing Research guides postgraduate students in art and design through the development and implementation of a research project, using the metaphor of a 'journey of exploration'. For use with a formal programme of study, from masters to doctoral level, the book derives from the creative relationship between research, practice and teaching in art and design. It extends generic research processes into practice-based approaches more relevant to artists and designers, introducing wherever possible visual, interactive and collaborative methods. The Introduction and Chapter 1 'Planning the Journey' define the concept and value of 'practice-based' formal research, tracking the debate around its development and explaining key concepts and termilogy. 'Mapping the Terrain' then describes methods of contextualizing research in art and design (the contextual review, using reference material); 'Locating Your Position' and 'Crossing the Terrain' guide the reader through the stages of identifying an appropriate research question and methodological approach, writing the proposal and managing research information. Methods of evaluation and analysis are explored, and finally strategies for reporting and communicating research findings are suggested. Appendices and a glossary are also included. Visualizing Research draws on the experience of researchers in different contexts and includes case studies of real projects. Although written primarily for postgraduate students, research supervisors, managers and academic staff in art and design and related areas, such as architecture and media studies, will find this a valuable research reference. An accompanying website www.visualizingresearch.info includes multimedia and other resources that complement the book.
- Author BiographyCarole Gray is a Research Professor and Julian Malins a Reader in Design at Gray's School of Art, The Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, Scotland. Both have PhDs and extensive experience of supervising and examining research degrees in art and design. Both are practitioners with a belief in the creative relationship between practice, teaching and research. A visual artist, Carole makes context specific artwork using new materials and technologies. She is currently involved in research that re-thinks the role of the artist in cultural processes (www.ontheedgeresearch.org). As a designer and a maker Julian maintains a long-term interest in ceramics research, in particular how new technologies can support new models of craft practice. He is currently involved in a number of projects investigating web-based technologies for learning. The authors have worked together on understanding experiential, constructive learning styles, especially visual learning styles, increasingly within higher degree frameworks. As committed practitioners, educators and researchers they continue to be excited by the challenges posed by research, and they continue to learn.
