Gruppdagbok i forskning och praktik – en metod för gruppstudier

Jern, Stefan LU and Hempel, Anders (2002) In FOG-rapport 49.
Abstract
A new method for collection of group data is described— Group Diary. Document studies in psychology are a background. Group members collect data as recorders and synthesize their notes. The method is a tool for learning, research and consultation. Methodological issues are elucidated. After presentation of five studies on group formation and development done by the authors, the pros and cons of the method in research, epistemology, ethics, precision and quality of data are critically discussed. The method is a valid alternative to traditional observation, especially for studies that require collection of data over time. Future measures for validation are pointed out.
