iHub Research By Jessica Colaço / May 23, 2011
Research @iHubNairobi Workshop
Students, professionals and green members came together this past Friday (May 20) to work out the story of their organization/project/idea. Anna Clark, based in Kenya for 6 months on a Fulbright fellowship from the US, led a group of ten through an interactive discussion and variety of writing exercises to uncover and hone their project narratives and professional biographies. Participants learned techniques to help showcase their skills in written English form. Attendees happily left with a first draft of their project narratives and bios to use for email correspondence, grant proposals, websites, and other key communications.
Narrative mapping is a tool for systematic review of complex evidence that has grown out of discourse analysis. It is a tool that categorizes and aggregates complex qualitative date in ways that support analysis. This discussion will focus on Kenyan media as a case study.
Please join us for the next r@iHub media workshop led by Katya Thomas, Information Officer of the US Embassy-Nairobi this upcoming Friday (May 27th) from 2 – 4 pm.
