About Research at GradCAM
We operate with researchers by working through a series of questions:
(i) what are you trying to find out?
(ii) why is it worth knowing?
(iii) how do you go about finding out?
(iv) how will you know when you have finished?
These questions are used as an initial structure for shaping an enquiry. We recognise the need to re-work these questions and move beyond them in the process of a live creative research process. However, we advise our researchers to attend carefully to these questions at each key phase of their doctoral studies.
We are committed to a peer-community ethos that fosters dialogue and critical agency.
