A practical guide to innovation in research
Research is more than simply producing knowledge: it’s about provoking new ideas, creating new solutions, and pushing social change forward. Design Thinking and Social Construction goes beyond traditional conceptions of right or wrong within research; instead, this book offers an alternative research pathway. One that considers the complex realities of the 21st century, provoking new ideas and helping to generate solutions that can enact social change.
Design Thinking and Social Construction provides an innovative new framework for research that is context-dependent, transformative, and future-forming. This research process will help practitioners, researchers, and grad students to co-create meaning, relying more on the plurality of voices and perspectives of our modern world and less on typical research motives - to predict and control.
The book comprises six chapters, each filled with insightful theories, strategic methods, and practical tools. It integrates the idea of social construction with design thinking tools, challenging the concept of dualism in research, such as quantitative/qualitative and subjective/objective.
With new approaches to knowledge that drive social change and idea generation, Design Thinking and Social Construction is a must-read for anyone that seeks to build upon traditional research frameworks.
