Event description

Description

Ethnographic research usually involves observing target users in their natural, real-world setting, rather than in the artificial environment of a lab or focus group. The aim is to gather insight into how people live; what they do; how they use things; or what they need in their everyday or professional lives. (Gov.uk)

The workshop will cover:

  • The background to ethnography
  • Discussions on how it can be done (participant observations and the different levels of this)
  • Making writing field notes
  • Engaging with participants and informants and linking to semi-structured interviews  
  • Real life examples

Facilitator:

Dr Martin Patridge, Faculty of Education, Health & Wellbeing (FEHW)
