Abstract

This case study describes how the experience sampling method can be used to explore the impact of everyday behaviours on health and wellbeing, focusing on the correlates of participatory art in everyday life. The experience sampling method repeatedly samples moments of immediate experience as people go about their daily lives, tracking behaviours and their correlates, enabling temporal and complex patterns to be explored. The advantages of this compelling method are outlined, and practical advice given about how to run an experience sampling study successfully. For example, how to develop research questions at different levels of complexity, how to write an experience sampling questionnaire and how to engage and retain research participants.
