This workshop will look at the research methods in this academic discipline. We will explore the different types of research available in this field including: several types of experimental research, case studies, and practitioner wisdom. We will compare quantitative and qualitative research, and learn about statistical data analysis. We will also look at the different types of publications or presentations as potential outcomes of this research and examine the structure of scientific publications and presentations.
This workshop can be done in-person or online. It lasts 2 hours but can be longer by request to get a more in-depth overview of the topic. The in-person version of this seminar is part participatory, part lecture-based so the students should be ready to move and explore the basic tools of dance science.
