Selecting methods [part 3]

Interviews:

Interviews are a wonderful way to get in depth understanding of a system from the point of view of the participants in this system. Still, they are very time-consuming to conduct but most importantly to analyze properly.

Key points I take into consideration for SFA:

  • May not be that helpful over a well done questionnaire as in SFA I am really interested in the numbers.

Key point I take into consideration local context:

  • Very relevant to identity motivations for practicing (or not) UA, and waste management.
  • Considering the time investment however for proper analysis it may be beyond the scope of my project. I can look at context at the city scale, and not the individual actor scale and still answer some interesting questions.
