Everyone did a great job presenting their mini case study. It seems like we all learned a lot new things from this project.
My question to the class… “How can working professionals perform cultural research with demanding roles?”
Personally, time is always limited. I would have to set aside a dedicated amount of time to get obtain social and cultural details related to a literacy event. At this point in my career finding that extra time is a challenge.
Although I can’t implement mini case studies in its entirety, I can use bits and pieces to enhance learning and processes. Below are some ideas I have on how to use pieces on the research project on the job:
• When gathering project requirements, ask neutral questions that unveil the social and cultural aspect of the project.
• During discussion observe and take notes on themes.
• Perform discourse analysis on documentation.
I am sure there are more ways to use what we have learned without engaging in an entire research project. I welcome your suggestions.
