Creative Knowledge Elicitation

The CASL Research team uses creative qualitative research data collection and analysis,  measurement theory, and adult learning principles to elicit deep reflection of people’s knowledge and experiences. Research facilitators use creative elicitation techniques consisting of a  combination of interactive presentations, small-group inspired by World-Café modeled discussions, collaborative technologies, and creativity activities such as brainstorming, forced connections, guided journaling, and collective storytelling to elicit the expert knowledge of leaders. 

CASL’s creative knowledge elicitation strategies are rooted in oral traditions and the active engagement of research participants. Creative elicitation is an interactive, inquiry-based approach to collecting rich qualitative data. The following video and explanations below are examples of CASL’s creative knowledge elicitation strategies.
