Ethnographic Methods for Human Factors Researchers

Collecting and Interweaving Threads of HCI

Course at CHI 2019 - Glasgow, UK - May 4-9

This course offers an introduction to ethnography for Human Factors Research. It covers relevant topics along the research process from decision arguments for the method and study design, up to data collection, analysis and interpretation. Ethical questions will include the researcher’s role(s) in the field and modes of data presentation. The collection of multi-dimensional sets of data – a trademark of high-quality ethnographic work – enables inter-weaving threads of CHI perspectives in complex human factors and user research contexts. To achieve this, a comprehensive toolbox of ethnographic methods is introduced along with practical hands-on work phases to familiarize with these methodological instruments.

What will you learn?

Attendees completing the course will gain an understanding of ethnography as a research method and will in particular    

  • be able to assess when and why the method is suitable for a specific issue or HCI research question 
  • have reflected on their role as a researcher and ethical considerations connected with ethnographic modes of data collection
  • acquire a methodological toolbox enabling the collection of a diverse set of qualitative data for cohesive analysis 
  • be familiar with the process of analyzing qualitative data and tools available for analysis

Who should attend the course?

PhD students, researchers and practitioners with limited or without previous experience in ethnographic research.
