CA2REPLUS

/ Impact

+

Ghent 2019

The CA2RE+ conference helps me to follow, understand and reflect on the diverse landscape of DDDr. The conference thereby helps me to position myself and my own competencies, but also to challenge these and expand my horizon.

…continue the work on research with a higher awareness of fragility of the research process. This includes additional work on research development as well as development of the presentation of research since it is closely related to understanding the process of research itself.

Attending the CA2RE+ congress helped me a lot to understand and expand my idea of ​design-driven​ doctoral research. It opened my mind to a plurality of ideas … I also understood that some of the exposed methodologies would not be so difficult to transfer to my country, where architecture schools do not offer ‘research-by-design’ doctoral programs.

I am changing the methodology of my research (reintroduce practice-driven component).

I’m searching for motivation, enhancement of my self-confidence and also for the necessary triggers to refresh and reboot the previous experiences as a doctoral and master supervisor and/or evaluator, as well as a researcher and research manager. My awareness of what I can offer and get at these events is increasing.

…by the design-practice related research projects, which constantly not only produce new content, but also develop new ways of researching it…

The impact was perceived the first day, when the conference was introduced by the “role-play” session. This was a sort of orientation and, perhaps more, was a calibration of expectations and tool for initial orientation and self-criticism. I would say that each presentation, given the quality of the reviewers, offered a portal to the character of “impact” and its synthesis into other aspects of the conference and presentations…in that way the conference positively built upon itself.

I look back on my notes and try to implement the comments in my current work.

The impact of the scheme is only becoming visible now, since these circles of observation span different stages in a research project. I keep the scheme in mind, especially when I am reflecting on my own work and in calibrating my own observations and the comments and observations of different peers on my work.

The evidence is in the way the /…/ candidates visibly understood the feedback they received…

Rather than being a simple event, the last CA2RE+ conference represented an immersive learning environment, in which relational and behavioral factors counted more than specific content ones.

… it helped me individuate my research approach in a defining rather than confining way, evaluate other works in a propositive rather than negative manner, and reconsider research methodology in light of different parameters.

I will try to organize my working process in a manner where I can use my supervisors and peers in a more productive way.

…pushing the relevance of design driven research as a recognised field within the eternal fight for scientific assessment of our research productivity.

For me is in the format and the atmosphere CA2RE/+ is able to build: there is a commonality of aims that helps to focus and to create a creative and productive environment.

…Employing the ‘circles of observation’ on my own research will play a part in the reflection on my process (and hence play a role in the subsequent actions)

Being able to talk about (& around) something which is actually present, instead of only represented, makes a lot of sense in our research community. Experiencing it around my own artefact and witnessing presentations of others, helped me to think more about how to communicate with and the autonomy of the research production.

Evidence… starting to immediately re-write the draft of the research paper that I’ve sent for the conference – a core element of the PhD’s content. Another evidence – e-mails of good will for collaboration with some of the participants and keynote speakers.

… It was like observing a theatre of ties about which you were previously blind. The deep dialogues/multilogues with the other participants that had similar paths of interest enhanced my knowledge and desire for what I actually do – by making me able to see what I didn’t see before.

The growing ‘CA2RE family’ provides a steadily developing in-depth understanding of the specificities of (design) research at each participating partner institution and allow me to get a deeper understanding of my institutional network and an understanding of multiple roles of design as a driver of research
