Fascinating session with Lib Straughton  - on creative research and creative evaluation - thanks for sharing Lib and everyone - lots of ideas about subverting hierarchies of text and talk, not creating new ones around 'being creative' and the challenge of interpreting data AND finding a way of presenting that in your paper or thesis (a picture speaks about 80k words...) 


 (by begging them) and 23 people did (out of 60? - Richard, how many were there?!) thanks to them ! The end of the Line (see image from poster below) said ' I got what I wanted from the PGF so far!' and the other end (same length again from the yellow sticky) said 'I'm disappointed by the PGF so far!' - we aren't showing that side because there were no stickers on it ...you can see, responses were overwhelmingly positive, although not clustered at the 'most positive end'.   

The (two) yellow stickers said: '12 minutes isn't a long time' (that one had another sticker on it, suggesting two responses) - referring to the time slots for each 'Cafe' session; and 'All PhDs share similar activities!'.

On another sheet, about feelings at the end of the session, 13 people 'stickered'  the phrase 'It's a good start to the conference!' (and one stickered 'I'm all fired up!). 8 People stickered 'Im nervous about the conference or my presentation' - and no-one said 'I'm disappointed so far', or  'I found it confusing'.

What do you think ?? was the evaluation valid ? was the sample too small ? Is it legitimate to add this in to the 'melting pot' of various evaluations going on all week? Answers on a postcard please !
