We held our first project meeting today.
The focus of our research is how ESOL learners with limited print literacy in any language manage their personal information. We know very little about what strategies they use and so our plan is to take a very open approach in our visits and be guided by participants.
We had some interesting discussions about the challenges of conducting research in people’s homes and the challenges of working with ESOL learner participants. We have submitted an ethics application and are now waiting for this to be approved before we can recruit participants and make our first visits.
