Creating Knowledge Through Research Methods. This research course is run as an experimental workshop in which students investigate both conventional and unconventional practices, such as literature searches, fieldwork, quantitative analysis, physical surveys and measurements, historical and archival work, interviews and focus groups, photography and other types of visual documentation, and participatory action research, focusing on the effects of a researcher's actions on a community. These practices are tested, analyzed, and applied through methods including social networking and remote observation. Each student creates a tool kit tailored to his or her own area of research for the final thesis.
