2017 Radical Research Summit Microethnography: A UX Research Method for Next Wave Technology with Siri Mehus

Now that we've entered the era of ubiquitous computing (predicted by Weiser and Seely Brown in 1996), UX research methods that focus on the interaction between an individual and a screen are no longer adequate. People interact with one another and with technology through a rich mixture of sensory modalities: visual, vocal, auditory, gestural, and haptic.

Microethnographic techniques offer a means of describing and analyzing multimodal interactions among humans and their technological tools as they unfold in physical and digital spaces. In this talk we describe how to leverage microethnographic methods to inform the design of multimodal interactions for home and enterprise products by providing guidance for collection and analysis of multimedia data.
