When/why: This method is useful for providing objective views of activities within a context over an extended period of time.

How: Set up a camera to record movements in a space over time. If unable to set up a camera, ask to use security cameras that may already be in place. Or better yet, use gadgets you may already have on hand like your smart phone.

Tips: Keep an eye out for patterns. Take note of factors and details that may affect patterns such as time of day, weather, events, etc.
