"It's Not Just Me": Using Photovoice as a Participatory Research Methodology

Wed., Apr. 3, 2019 12:00 p.m. - Wed., Apr. 3, 2019 1:00 p.m.

Location: ED 341

Abstract: Photovoice (sometimes referred to as photo novella or photonovel) is a visual methodology that involves the capturing of images by participants, often guided by a research question. With this methodology, participants tell narratives based upon their own lived experiences. Instead of the researcher being positioned as the expert, participants in the photovoice methodology are experts themselves. With its focus on the value of participant knowledge, the accessibility to many people, and the ability to shed light on participant voices who may not often be heard, this methodology is often used to stimulate social action and engage policymakers. The purpose of this seminar is twofold: (a) this seminar will review the background of the photovoice methodology, and (b) explore a research project that looked at graduate student experiences in the field of physical and health education. Insights will be shared on how this methodology can be used in both a research context and an educational setting.

Everyone is welcome. Coffee is provided. No registration is required.
