Fieldwork From Home

Kelly Goto will take you through an in-depth yet practical look at conducting deep dive, remote research. A similar process to digital diary studies, she'll show you how to encourage self-reporting and documentation, how and when to prompt through a study, and several activities to spur brainstorming or establish needs. Kelly will take you through what tools to use (and what to avoid) and realistic ways to keep the study moving forward. She'll look at samples of the types of 'snippets' and insights that can be generated through these methods, and how this information feeds back into real-world product cycles.
