Research Training Workshops

Student researchers in the Climate Change and Me project attended Research Training workshops with experienced educational researchers from Southern Cross University, Professor Amy Cutter-Mackenzie and Research Fellow David Rousell. The students learned to engage with research theory and methodology, and use a variety of ethnographic and art-based research methods for collecting data about climate change in their communities.These methods included interviews, video, photography, field notes, drawings, poetry and fiction, and the student researchers were encouraged to experiment with all of these methods in their own ways. They were not given predetermined definitions or perspectives on climate change, but were encouraged to investigate the diversity of children and young people’s awareness, attitudes and actions towards the issue.
