“I am delighted to be chairing this session on The Future of Conversation at the Fusion Conference! We humans adapt readily to advances in technology, and as a result the digital revolution has caused a huge change in the way we communicate. Sarah is raising a big question that affects all of us involved in qualitative research, and the AQR is delighted to be collaborating with ESOMAR in exploring what best practice looks like in this new context.” -AQR Chair Lyn McGregor
There’s no doubt that the way we communicate has rapidly changed, with over half of the global population now having access to the internet and 42% using social media. We are increasingly using digital platforms to talk, share ideas and express our feelings. But what does this means for qualitative researchers?
In this three part series I will tell you: 1. the implications of an increase of the written word in digital communications; 2. how we can interpret and understand visual communication; 3. how we can best leverage all this user generated data.
Learn how to adapt your mindset to produce effective research-based games.

In the past decades the amount of stimuli that an average human is exposed to has increased exponentially. On one hand, this growing flood of information opened unlimited opportunities for learning and self-development, on the other – it impacts drastically the human ability to focus by shortening our attention spans. The VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) environment created a need for the agile learning process, which requires not only careful selection and dosing of the amount of information, but is also impacting the way it is presented.
