Professor Raul Roman, also Co-Founder of UBELONG, has invited me in to his class on Research Methods for a number of semesters to discuss the use of video in qualitative research and evaluation. Here’s a video we did from the very first time I came to class… lots of fun, and the students were fantastic.
In 2005 Quimera worked with the Director of Research at the UN Population Fund and their African Youth Alliance Program (AYA) to develop a project evaluation video report as part of program close-out and project documentation. As one of the first UNFPA projects designed as a full partnership with youth program leadership wanted to understand the impacts of youth participation on the project. Through a list serve Quimera was a resource for in-country project youth teams, offering training and support related to audio and visual production and interviewing. In-country youth teams conducted and filmed interviews and focus groups, sending all raw footage to Quimera for editing into a final video report.
