This position will help with data collection from three campus locations via 1) conducting unobtrusive observations of space use patterns; 2) recruiting participants to complete an online survey; and 3) transcribing the recordings from student focus groups. Additionally, student researcher(s) will assist the faculty advisors in developing the observation templates, transforming data into digital copies, and reviewing the data to identify implications for the design of other informal learning spaces on campus. Assistant Professor of Interior Design Miyoung Hong, Ph.D., and Assistant Professor of University Libraries Erica DeFrain, Ph.D., are looking for students who may want to submit a UCARE application to support their continued research beginning Fall of 2018, and continuing to the Spring of 2019.
