From Jenna Hartel:
You are warmly welcomed to participate in the course INF2330: Information Ethnography at the Faculty of Information this fall. It is offered on Monday, 1:00-4:00. You can learn more about the course, here.
As you may know, ethnography is hot as a means to better understand the Information Age. As libraries continue to undergo exciting changes, there is a great opportunity for ethnographic research into the use of information resources and services and/or into the student learning experience to which we hope to bridge and to serve. Of note, INF2330 is unique at the Faculty of Information for providing a chance to conduct original research on “human subjects” with clearance from the Office of Research Ethics, and is therefore an ideal setting to conduct a pilot study of your own design.
Please consider this opportunity and do not hesitate to contact me to discuss any details of joining/auditing the course.
