Topic 1 Participant observation

More than a systematized technique, it is an attitude that is present throughout the entire research process. It simply consists of not letting details escape, even if they may seem insignificant, which can appear at any time, be it in meetings, workshops, informal contacts… It is convenient to take some simple notes related to the place, the people, the facts and the circumstances observed and it is also convenient to collect verbatim phrases on the subject or the territory heard in any circumstance. All these annotations, added to the results of the interviews and the previous collection of data and information, complement, in a very enriching way, the general vision of the social reality that we are knowing.
