Know Your Users Podcast 5 Developing Service Changes

Analysis Meetings : 

Analysis Meetings As you are coding and working through your data, plan to hold regular analysis meetings. Thinking deeply as a group about library issues. Keep the project moving. Primarily for discussion and brainstorming Prepare materials in advance.

Analysis Meetings : 

Analysis Meetings Typically address a specific theme. Transcript “experts” Screening interview videos as a research team

Brainstorming : 

Brainstorming Principle of no censorship All ideas are listed, even if they seem impossible, crazy, or silly. At this stage, consider keeping meetings confidential

Brainstorming : 

Brainstorming List all the important observations found in the transcripts about a particular theme. List any important patterns and commonalities observed in the data. Consider what service changes might be made to address these observations and patterns. List any additional research questions that need to be answered.

Research Meeting Summary : 

Research Meeting Summary Topic of Meeting What Did We Learn? General Observations Patterns Found in the Data Exceptional or Interesting Cases Hypotheses about the Data New Research Questions (either to use on this data or for a study later) Service Implications (e.g. how can library address any problems observed) Additional Analysis Required?

Developing Service Changes : 

Developing Service Changes Generate service change ideas at the same time as analysis. Allows you to create services that respond directly to students’ experiences. Master list of proposed service changes. Rank these changes for importance and feasibility. Use these lists to communicate with stakeholders within the library. Start conversations about how to effectively implement new service initiatives.

Using Ethnographic Writing : 

Using Ethnographic Writing Ethnography is both a method and a product. To create an ethnography, the writer selects from codes, memos, and analysis to explore a part of the research. You will not use all of your codes. Your text will be most powerful when it includes excerpts from interviews that show your reader what the participant is doing or feeling. Also include photographs, maps or other data gathered. Provide examples that show variations within a theme and explain the interrelationships of these themes. The resulting product should read as coherent story of a part of participants’ experience, and should provide vivid detail and interpretation of the observed events.
