Designing for creativity and innovation in science learning

Head over to the Centre for Life in Newcastle UK’s blog to read about Rudman Consulting’s latest research work.

Undertaken with anthropologists and  digital humanities experts at Durham University, and practitioners from the Centre for Life, Hannah Rudman has introduced participatory action research methods and design processes to a novel project funded by the ESRC.

Together, we are developing novel exhibits that will be experiments that encourage creativity and innovation. We are investigating whether encouraging more creative and innovative forms of enquiry increases engagement with science.

Hannah is also  introducing information systems to be digital research tools for collecting data about people’s activity with the exhibits, and for simultaneously gathering ethical consent. Hannah has been awarded Honorary Fellow in the Department of Anthropology at Durham University for her work on the project.
