I used Tim Ingold's Taskscape Theory and ethnography to identify the stages of course enrolment. First I course intended myself to develop a participant observation form, then went through course enrolment with five individuals while taking notes.
After they finished intending, I interviewed the participants one-on-one about the entire experience, including how they had prepared for it, and how they felt now that it was finished.
From both the observation and the interview, I developed an experience map detailing the actions, thoughts, and feelings of students during enrolment, and pain points encountered.
I created a research poster and presented my findings to my peers, as well as to the Interim Chair of the School of Fashion.
After graduation from the School, I learned that my project helped to inform the 2020 curriculum restructuring by proposing ways of enhanced communication between administrators and students.
