Within the next few weeks I hope to have all the transcribing completed for the focus groups I ran with academic and professional services staff. Fortunately I used to have to transcribe as part of an old job so hoping that the typing itself won’t take a very long time. What I do anticipate taking a long time is the sorting of information collected as part of these groups. I’m hoping that during the transcribing process distinct themes will start emerging and should really hope in driving the project forward.
As part of my project I’ve been undertaking focus groups with participants for my study. This weeks group involved colleagues from Educational Technology. I asked the group the same questions I have asked academic participants and got a varied response from members of the Ed Tech team which I will now need to transcribe to analyse further. It will be interesting to see how these answers vary from the previous focus group.
