Below is a summary of what I am looking at but I will continue to develop this on the MEd course wiki
So I am a little behind, but I have finally got things together for my research proposal. This is my current idea for now, I hope it is workable… The team that I am on has an established face:face support programme involving workshops, 1:1 appointments, volunteer training and PASS. As modes of study continue to diversify and as our students increasingly have life/work commitments, we need to consider how online support can supplement what we currently do. For this mini research project I proposed to look at the following two questions:
1) Are there any students currently not engaging with our face:face programme that could be supported online?
This could utilise current participant data that is available. I could supplement this with a couple of interviews or an online questionnaire.
2) What possible technologies could be used to facilitate online workshops or appointments (and what do similar teams in other universities currently use)?
This could involve researching and collating practice across the sector (or as much as possible given the time-frame.
