Summary How can we write about the individuals and communities we encounter in our practice? How can writing about these social exchanges inform our work and provide documentation and evaluation of the work? Using writing prompts and dialogue with each other we can consider these questions and develop techniques to better express our encounters and to be ethically informed in our approach. The workshop ran from one to two hours. Students were not required to prepare anything in advance, but needed to bring paper and pen for this lesson. No computers or tablets were allowed. Students received a series of brief writing prompts to which they needed to respond. They then undertook mock interviews, and discussed ethnographic qualitative research methods. Each prompt was themed and had a strict time limit. Discussions continued after each prompt and after the mock interviews.
