dc.description.abstract Human centred and co-design approaches to designing often involve working in collaborative, multi-disciplinary contexts. In such situations promoting collegial and open environments and methods of engagement to bring forward and capture the ideas, opinions, perspectives, of the participants for discussion are paramount. Visual action methods provide appropriate ways of promoting âsafeâ environments, eliciting information, promoting discussion and facilitating consensus in group situations. These methods provide ways for gaining deeper understandings of the research situation that is appropriate to practice, research and education. There are various methods or tools used within visual action research alongside ways of capturing the data that can take the form of both qualitative and quantitative data. The workshop proposal is for a 60 minute workshop introducing participants to key principles of visual action methods through the enactment of the method via a hypothetical research scenario. The workshop will enact and demonstrate how visual action methods develop rich pictures of a complex situation. The picture allows for disparate interdisciplinary groups to develop shared understandings. The picture holds the context and highlights the issues for discussion and development. This method of research and design engagement is being developed and tested for the purpose of the Australian Learning and Teaching Council Priority Project â A protocol for developing curriculum led human-centred next generation learning environments in higher education.
