Sampling – choosing Narrative – PAR and sparking stories

  1. Sampling/participants
    1. Talk with participants until you reach saturation – until you aren’t getting any new information
    2. Often you reach time, funds, participants saturation before you reach informational saturation.
    3. Sampling should be driven by your question
      1. are you interested in what is different about each case or what is the same about all of them?
  2. Narrative
    1. a way to show how the events of that human’s life are interpreted by them – Polkinger (ask Beth for spelling)
    2. They are going to look into several of their experiences and share the meaning they are making out of them, and I am going to make meaning of all of those cases.
      1. We’ll end up telling the story we want to tell, using their stories to support our story.
  3. PAR/PLA
    1. Coding activities – look at a picture of something familiar to everyone, share stories associated with that thing and build trust along the way.
    2. How can we get people to tell the stories we are interested in, what kind of artifact might start that depending on the questions.
    3. FAMA – Facts Associating Meaning Action (start at facts and move through to action)
