Checklist: Doing Observation and Ethnography
Is the issue of your research accessible to observation?
Where will it ‘happen’, what sort of situation or interaction will make it ‘visible’?
Which other methods – like in/formal interviews, for example – will you need for studying your issue?
If your issue has to do with virtual communication, how and where would you find it for a virtual ethnography?
How will you design your relation to the field and its members – participation or just observation?
How will you manage ethical issues like informed consent in your observation?
What is important to document in field notes as the data in your research?
