How to use creative methods?
When using creative methods, it is important to reflect on the particular needs of your target audience. Keep in mind the challenges of creative methods; for example, some participants may lack confidence in drawing or storytelling. Be prepared to facilitate by seeking out voices that are not being heard and making sure you can make sense of the information being provided.
When it comes to analysing the information, interpretation may require a high level of skill and aggregating the data may be difficult. It is important to remember that there may be an element of self-selection in who participates, and the data may also only represent a partial construct that requires contextualisation to make sense.
Try to complement more traditional methods with creative methods. For example, you could accompany visual methods with semi-structured interviews.
