Research Journal 20 MARCH

Abstract is finally complete after a bit of anguish and uncertainty of how I want to go about this research project.

Best to just start. Somewhere/anywhere! Have a read of the abstract here.

My research now has two main stages:

1. Establish relationships with stakeholders and begin to understand their position through semi-structured interviews.

2. Once I have a solid data set of people’s experience I need to begin thinking and creating Technology Probes to begin addressing problems and find opportunities for intervention.

BUT for now (maybe in order)…

  • a plain language statement
  • work out what organisations and who to approach
  • establish some base questions
  • form an outline of the semi-structured interview
  • approach the organisations and individuals
  • interview/talk to them.
