STRATUM: A Digital Field Notes Tool for Archaeologists

Under the Lab2Market Program, the intern will develop and test a field notes tool called STRATUM to alleviate stresses caused by documentation in the field. The tool development will be guided by the results of three studies: 1) a qualitative investigation of user needs and sources of stress (already underway); 2) a preliminary survey of the archaeological community of Canada and the US evaluating incidence of burnout (the main focus of this internship); and 3) a mixed-methods study evaluating the effect of a digital tool on burnout rates and stresses on archaeologists in the field, to be conducted upon completion of the first two studies.7.3.
