Constructivist Theory/ Approaches/Techniques

This social science workshop was an intense, interactive 3-day event focussed on Constructivist approaches and methods to research, which explored a suite of techniques for investigating how others perceive and understand their worlds, and the philosophy that underpins them. 

We were introduced to the theory and practice techniques that can produce appropriately focussed quantitative data as well as the rich, authentic qualitative data for which it is famed, from research participants across the range from professional people to young children, individually or in groups.

This workshop was run by Professor Pam Denicolo at the Univeristy of Surrey.
