Where does Insight Come From? (Fostering serendipity in research) - Savvy Researcher Series
Savvy Researcher Workshop Series
Topic: Where does Insight Come From? (Fostering serendipity in research)
Venue: Ulwazi Training Room
Research is sometimes presented as a linear, step-by-step, rather mechanical process. It is presented in this way because it is easy to teach in this way, and easy to explain or draft into a proposal to funders.
Good research, ground breaking research, on the other hand, seldom actually follows such a path.
Instead, it stems from moments of insight, from serendipitous encounters, unique to the individual who takes note of them.
This session is on how to conjure those moments and encounters.
