All NWSSDTP-funded students are expected to be involved in one of the five Methods North West Methods Exchange (‘MethodsX’) themes:
- Archives, Collections and Documents of Life
- New Forms of Data/Digital Methods
- Quantitative Methods
- Interview-based Qualitative Research
Students can select the most appropriate stream for them.
Involvement in the themes consists of attendance at three events a year – two theme meetings plus one end-of-year conference that brings together everyone involved in all five themes.
