<p class=MsoNormal>There is a large gap between knowing what techniques are
available to academic researchers and making them work productively in the
field. This seminar has been designed to assist participants make the most from
three of the more extensively used approaches to collecting data for doctoral
research. This practical seminar consists of briefing, discussions and
simulation exercises. Participants will be helped to decide which field method
or methods are most appropriate for their research and they will have the
opportunity to start developing their own protocols.<o:p></o:p></p>
