Monthly Method Spotlight: Camera Journal

my-camera-journalCamera Journal

When/why: This self-conducted technique is useful for prompting users to reveal their views, behavior patterns and thoughts at the user’s own pace. Because this method is informal and gives users independence from the researchers, it can result in rich and honest feedback.

How: Ask users to keep a written and visual diary of their activities and impressions over a period of time.

Tips: Keep an eye out for patterns, themes and motives as you read through the journal results.

Interested in using/applying these methods in your work? Contact us for more info.
