My journey is toward the PhD in eLearning and Learning Technologies through the Beyond Distance Research Alliance at the University of Leicester. My research study is considering the Personal Learnings Environments and Digital Literacy Skills related to the continuing professional development of security management and investigation professionals.
Prior to the Main Study, I have commenced a Pilot Study. During the Pilot, I am seeking participants to first complete an online questionnaire. As anticipated, the completion times are averaging between 15 and 20 minutes. The next stage of the Pilot will be to conduct interviews with those participants that indicated a willingness to do so. The interviews will generally be online, or at least with me using Skype to make telephone calls. Call Recorder for Skype seems to be a good tool for recording interviews (with consent).
If all goes as planned, the Pilot Study will be completed during September, allowing me a couple of months to write a report that is due for the report due at the end of the year.
