Video as a Research tool

Leverage video tools for your research

Digital media are increasingly being used as tools in research. Video offers unique opportunities to collect fine-grained data on human interactions and emotions. 

This training programme covers key technical skills relevant to using video as a research tool. It also tackles fundamental epistemological, ethical, and technical challenges  raised by digital research methods.
