This paper proposes a method to speed up the quantitative description of interaction occurrences during co-creative design sessions. Protocol analysis is traditionally used for such studies but it requires capturing video and cumbersome post session analyzing – making it too time consuming for analyzing a large number of sessions. We developed a new ‘on the fly’ method based on direct observation and compared the results obtained by this method to those obtained with traditional post-session coding method. Results were found to be very similar, whilst analysis time was significantly reduced.
