Step-by-Step for Field Observation1:36 with Tomer Sharon
Let's go over the steps you need to take right Before and During field observation
Let's go over the steps you need to take right before and during field observation. 0:00 One, prepare, have your field guide ready. 0:05 Brief your observers into what they can and can't do. 0:09 For example, interrupt participants in the middle of doing something. 0:12 Run a pilot session. 0:17 Have your camera, chargers, extra batteries ready with you. 0:18 And, the debrief template you'll be using, which we'll talk about very soon. 0:23 Two, meet the participant. 0:29 Establish rapport and make them feel comfortable about this whole weird 0:30 situation where people are watching them. 0:34 Brief them. 0:37 Explain exactly what you're gonna do. 0:38 And obtain their consent. 0:40 Now I don't mean that you have to ask them to sign an NDA or something like that. 0:42 But have them understand that they can stop the session at any point and 0:47 have them understand their rights going into this. 0:52 Three, collect data. 0:57 Record video if you're allowed. 1:00 Take photos if you're allowed. 1:01 Collect artifacts if you're allowed. 1:03 If you're not allowed to do all of these, 1:05 sketch the environment you're observing and take good notes. 1:08 Four, wrap up, leave on time. 1:12 No matter what you do, 1:15 leave on time because this is what you promised the participant. 1:16 And don't forget to ask final questions before you leave. 1:20 The fifth and last part is the debrief. 1:24 These steps will help you make sure you're not forgetting anything and 1:28 that your data collection is smooth. 1:32
