As geographers, we have the power to shape our world, by asking the right questions and carrying out research to answer those questions, leading to new and world changing discoveries!

But where do we even begin? How do we come up with a research idea? How do we go about producing and analysing evidence? And how do we share our discoveries with others?

In this first of 6 videos, we team with human geographer Prof. Ian Cook, to ask How do you come up with a new and interesting research idea?

For further reading about research into political Lego, see Inviting construction: Primark, Rana Plaza and political LEGO.
