A Crash Course On Shadowing/Observation

The following notes are taken from Prof. Jonathan Sillito‘s Qualitative Research Methodology Course.

We focus on Participant Observation. What to really focus on:

  • Member’s meanings
  • Member’s methods

What to keep in mind:

  • Recording date and time
  • The goal is ‘good’ description (including context, details matter, who did what, etc.)
  • Using full prose (complete sentence)
  • Differentiate direct quotes and paraphrases
  • Differentiate direct description and supposition
  • Recording  process of how you learn something
