I wrote this paper during the end of Winter 2020 Semester at the Medicine Hat College In my Research Methods in Social Sciences class. This class was such a great experience. I had fun writing it because I am working to become a social scientist and this was a very unique opportunity to create something that has historical context. Here are a couple excerpts to preview!
“In order to gain experience in the field of research, our Research Methods in Social Sciences class completed a three-hour observation. At the beginning, the plan was to observe different locations within the Vera Bracken Library. The objective was to record detailed notes discreetly on the behaviors of people around us. This was to understand how the library within a college campus was being utilized by the occupants. There are 8 students that have 24 hours of observations time (3 hours for each student). The initial objective started on March 8th, 2020 and ended March 12th, 2020. There were 5 hours of observation in the library by 3 different students. However, our objective changed due to an announcement by the Federal Government of Canada and the Provincial Government of Alberta. The World Health Organization announced a world-wide pandemic due to the outbreak of Covid-19 (Corona Virus).”
