Stories

Practitioners record of their experiences

In early 2015 IRISS conducted a creative, and qualitative, research project designed to understand the experiences of social care practitioners across Scotland.

We asked practitioners to record their experiences over one week using a diary, a timesheet and prompt cards. This approach is called a cultural probe and is designed to support participants to reflect on their experiences and share thoughts and feelings from their week.
