WHAT WE DID
I made observations at the student food market District Market. Observing from the Husky Grind, as shown in the field notes below, I gathered information without interacting and affecting the subjects. I jotted down the three Ps (people, place and practice), as well as the fourth P (problem). The three practices I observed were the process of checking items out in the food market, the practice of checking out at the Husky Grind (coffee place), and lastly how the workers maintained the area. I focused on the practices I observed, providing diagrams that could further illustrate and help explain my comments. I also separated practices, allowing me to be more detailed in each of them. Each practice had its own problem, but checking items out in the food market was the most interesting one. For full details, here’s the link to the final observations and field notes.
