RESEARCH

Research allows us to explore a variety of themes and scenarios beyond the scope of many conventional projects. We at TEDS see it as a key avenue through which to innovate and collaborate with a wide variety of stakeholders. Over the years we’ve worked on a numbers of research council funded studies (see a selection below). These have often involved community engagement, the creation of mixed media outputs and teams that comprise of government, industry, academic and local representatives.

FIELDWORK

Over the years we're developed a number of different research tools and methods that help us gather data from the field. These help up consider the physical, social and environmental contexts in a given location.

WORKSHOPS

We have experience of designing and hosting a range ot different types of workshops (particularly community engagement). These are tailored to suit the research focus and stakeholders particular needs.

ANALYSIS

Our research methodologies encompass both quantative and qualitative analysis. The analysis often has a spatial and temporal element to it, which when set alongside TEDS visualisations help provide a unique perspective.

DISSEMINATION

The conscise communication of research outputs and methods is very important to us. Our findings are shared in peer reviewed journals, industry good practice guidance, through media outlets and as educational material.
