Using Multiple Videoed Events to generate data

What is it about?

This paper explores the methodology underpinning the use of Multiple Videoed Events (MVE) to generate rich sets of data when seeking a deep, complex understanding of a phenomenon.

Why is it important?

It's often the case that researchers video an event that they later analyse themselves or with colleagues. The MVE method disrupts this common practice, inviting participant voice into the data generating process and allowing for the interrogation of an event from multiple perspectives.

The ways that individuals acquire knowledge has always intrigued me, from the perspective of an educator and also from the perspective of a researcher seeking to understand the issues that we investigate. I can see the parallels between the writings of Hume, Kant, Plato, Hegel, Giddens and others and the way in which we go about our work as researchers. Some of these connections are shared in this paper.
