Gearing up for Ethnography

Speaker:  Carol J Smith – Pittsburgh, PA, United States
Topic(s):  Human Computer Interaction


Prepping for research can be intimidating, and there will never be enough time or resources. Carol will share her personal experiences in the field, both good and bad. She has learned the hard way, by doing observations in moving vehicles, coal mines, hospitals, schools, homes, and offices. She will also share interesting anecdotes from colleagues and review both ethical and behavioral standards for researchers. The key is to prepare well, learn to be flexible and to adapt to the situation.
