Micro-Phenomenology Modelling Tool (2017-)

Describe experiences at a micro-phenomenological level

uPMT is aimed at researchers using microphenomenology interviews (also know as explicitation interviews) to study lived experience. It has been designed to help analyze the micro-dynamics of experience as described in interview transcriptions, by modelling and formalizing the sequential unfolding of “experience moments” described with categories and properties, and linked to the descriptemes - excerpts of the transcript - that justify them.

Current development work is carried out by students.

The experience model is built on the left, the interview transcription is available on the right. The experience is described in the central part of the tool, as a hierarchical sequence of moments, further described by categories.
