Toolkit 13: Using walking interviews
Andrew Clark, University of Salford, and Nick Emmel, University of Leeds, August 2010
This toolkit discusses our experiences using walking interviews in outdoor urban environments, focusing on the practicalities of conducting these interviews and on ways of thinking about the data produced in the method, which we used as part of the Connected Lives project.
Connected Lives was a multi-method project investigating neighbourhood, networks and community. For more about how the research team selected and used their research methods to answer their research questions, see:
