This chapter overviews the different approaches to using visual methods in HRD research, offering a ‘toolbox’ from which HRD-researchers might select according to their research needs. We explore the different traditions of visual research design and methods, with a specific focus upon their practical application within the HRD research context.

The chapter provides an overview of the, as yet, under-utilised tool of photo-elicitation interviewing. It examines the development of this method and its value to HRD research. A case of non-formal expansive workplace learning of public sector professionals is offered to illustrate the application of this approach in HRD-research practice.
