OBJECTIVE OF THE COURSE
The Institute for Studies in Industrial Development (ISID) is organizing a One-Week Workshop on Audio-Visual Media as a Tool in Research for Social Science Researchers during March 25 – 30, 2019. The workshop is sponsored by the Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR), New Delhi.
In recent years, audio-visual media and the technology needed for its production is becoming increasingly accessible both in terms of ease of use as well as cost. Digital media productions are being used more and more by government departments, corporate houses as well as NGO’s and other developmental organizations. However, social scientists and researchers in most academic institutions, who are doing a lot of meaningful work, have yet not fully realized the potential of integrating audio-visuals in their work. Basic understanding and training in the use of this medium and its integration in dissemination for more effective impact and outreach by researcher scholars is the main objective of this workshop. Techniques of visual data collection and analysis, along with ethical and moral norms that are unique to this medium need to be understood.
The focus of the workshop is to familiarise the participants with audio visual media tools and motivate researchers and academics to use this medium as a tool, to not only enhance the content but also to reach the wider audience and impact of their research.
Broad elements of the workshop are:
- Understanding visual mass media
