The Vitalities Lab, a research group at UNSW Sydney, has recently launched a webinar series called ‘Breaking Methods‘.

These videos are prepared by Vitalities researchers and focus on creative methods that ‘break the mould’. There are currently eight videos on their YouTube channel, “using a ‘voice-over’ plus slides, presenters give an account of a recent or current (work in progress) empirical research project, explaining how and why they used the method”. These videos are helpful as introductions to qualitative, creative methods. These can be useful to students wanting to explore new methodological approaches in their research.

Here are some examples:
