How can computational methods generate descriptive field notes?
How are descriptive field notes written/documented? Narrative? Graphical? What vocabularies and structures are available?
Qualitative observation descriptive field notes – (sample from HCI)
- How to document these? What can be automated and/or computationally generated so the observer can focus on parts that can’t be?
- How to analyze these?
- for a single event?
- over time @ same context?
- across time and/or contexts?
So… I’m looking at developing methods for the documentation and/or generation of DESCRIPTIVE FIELD NOTES FOR QUALITATIVE OBSERVATION IN SOCIOLOGICAL RESEARCH CASE STUDIES.
