This evening I attended an interesting and useful session by Natasa Lackovic on the subject of visual research methodologies. Natasa had prepared a video presentation in advance of the session that I watched earlier today (and for which I have a few pages of hand written notes). Here's the link to the video:
And here are some of my notes from this evening's session (with a full transcript at the bottom).
The following information snet through from Jen Ross ahead of Natasa Lackovic's session on visual literacy next Tuesday. The video doesn't play (something to do with Windows Media Player, apparently) so I'll need to try go in early to work and try and catch it before Tuesday.
I'm really glad that I contacted Natasa Lackovic and that I took time to speak to her during her time at Edinburgh University earlier this year. From what I know of Natasa she is a shining star in her field therefore, just as with members of the MSc in E-Learning team and with Michael and Jeremy, I'm going to try to learn as much from her as possible. It was really good then to get a reply to the message that I sent on Friday, including the offer to continue our discussions.
This evening I've replied to Natasa thanking her and taking up her offer of some suggested reading within multimodality. I've also said that I'll get in touch again to discuss my research once it's a bit more formed.
