Before I begin..
First of all, I need to find out what Ethnographic Research is! Here are some definitions that I found from various different websites:
“Testing that is carried out under realistic conditions of use. Results are usually qualitative rather than quantitative.” – designcouncil.org.uk
“Study of living cultures, using anthropological techniques like participant observation (where the anthropologist lives in the society being studied) and a reliance on informants. Ethnography has provided much data of use to archaeologists as analogies.” – encyclopedia.farlex.com/ethnographical
“Ethnography is a form of research focusing on the sociology of meaning through close field observation of sociocultural phenomena. Typically, the ethnographer focuses on a community (not necessarily geographic, considering also work, leisure, and other communities), selecting informants who are known to have an overview of the activities of the community.” – www2.chass.ncsu.edu/garson/PA765/ethno.htm
