I'm writing an ethnographic study for a human computer interaction module and I understand all the processes of conducting ethnography.

I am unsure of how to structure my study. Is it conventional to have it in an essay format, or are case studies preferred?

I have used ethnography for similar purposes several times. Structuring the interviews so that you are an apprentice and your subject plays the role of a master artisan works well.

The book, "Contextual Design" by Beyer and Holtzblatt provides several modeling techniques for expressing the information in some ways that add significantly to essay.
