Editor's Notes

  • Guided conversations that allow us to discover and probe for respondents’ attitudes and thought processes
    Ideally, conducted in private and in a natural setting
    Can be scheduled or ad hoc
    Can do several with one respondent
    Approximately 1 hour in length
    Uses a set of questions as a guide, not as a fixed rule
    Will be a key tool throughout this project
  • Respondents self-report their responses to a specific question (or set of questions) to help us understand a particular habit, behavior, or process over time
    Written responses
    Short interviews at regular intervals
    Photo or video diaries
    Well-suited to young people
  • Documents and artifacts can tell us a lot about the people and cultures that produce or use them, based on how they are designed, distributed, and/or used:
    Documents may include posters, brochures, advertisements, and other informational material aimed at our respondents
    Artifacts may be anything that our respondents may use to access, share, or store information
  • Start 11:30am / 3 minutes each
    What was the last piece of information you needed to get, that you had to search for?
    How did you search for it? Once you had it, did you share it with anyone?
    (We want to understand how information moves, and how do people choose certain sources, etc. Not just focused on media.)
  • What sources do you trust? What sources do you always question? Why?
    Photo –Daily Mashrique Popular newspaper Mohmand
  • Protests in Mohmand – against movie Sept 2012
  • Is solution oriented: not research for the sake of research
