QualMIP week 4: artifact analysis scavenger hunt

February 17, 2016 – 3:17 am

Part of the QualMIP series, doctor introduced here.

I’m on a research trip this week, symptoms so QualMIP gets a scavenger hunt (of sorts; strictly speaking, it doesn’t fit the definition, but they are roaming around campus to look for things) in my absence as a way to start folding document/artifact analysis into the things they’re doing. I’ve included the entirety of their clues document below.

Scavenger hunt start!

Welcome! You’ll find the relevant materials in my office, on the table; there are 4 things labeled with post-it notes (A/B/C/D) for each section. Take them with you as you go about the day.

You’ve got a hard stop at 3pm, so pace yourselves; each section should take about the same amount of time (this accounts for you eating during the first section), but you’ll want to make the last one shorter so you have time to do the reflection questions (maybe 10-15 minutes).

First thing to do: send me your 100 research questions.

Second thing to do: create a shared google doc with public editing and drop the link into the QualMIP chat. Name it whatever you like. You’ll be putting shared notes in this document as you go around; whenever I talk about a doc or document in the instructions later, that’s the document I mean.

Now go to the dining hall, get some food, and use http://www.rot13.com/ to decode the first message. You can leave your other stuff behind in the office — you’ll come back here later — but you’ll want (1) somebody’s laptop and (2) somebody’s smartphone.
