Research Participants Needed

Recommended Posts

*** Research Participants Needed ***

Hello,

I am recruiting for participants to be involved in a research study regarding the experiences of students with hearing impairments at university and university practice towards inclusion.

I am conducting this study as the basis for the degree of BA Education at The University of East Anglia. This will take place under the supervision of Dr Rebecca Westrup at the University of East Anglia.

I am seeking current students OR graduates with hearing impairments to participate in one semi-structured interview with myself, prior to the 8th March 2019.
The interview is expected to take between 20-40 minutes and will be conducted at a suitable time and location, or via telephone/video-call.
Questions will be reflecting on your experience at university as a student with a hearing impairment.  

Should you be interested in participating and fit the criteria, please contact me at [email protected]
If you know of anyone who may be interested in participating, please forward them my contact details so that I can provide further information.
Furthermore, an interpreter will be available, if requested in advance.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions that you may have.

 

About me:

My name is Cat and I am studying for a degree in Education with the aim of completing a PhD.
I have been a member of my university BSL society for three years and held a committee position for one year.
I am a level 1 signer and wish to continue to practice and learn BSL to gain level 6!

    • Hi, my name is Sheryl. I am learning BSL because I want to be able to talk to people, and to help make people feel understood. I look forward to learning more.
    • Hello,  I just wished to say why I am learning BSL. I am a dance teacher and am learning BSL so that any student can come to my lessons and learn the art of dance, no matter how much they can hear or their ability. It is something that anyone should be able to enjoy no matter if they are a child or an adult and I wish to be able to make my school as inclusive as possible for all those that wish to learn the art of dance.  
    • Hi everyone, my name is Angela. I started studying BSL a month ago and i’m  enjoying it very much.  
    • Hi! I’m from Melton Mowbray and I’d love to learn the sign name for the town if anyone here knows it. 🙂 (Maybe it’s a pork pie, haha!)
    • Hi I'm Lou and I'm training as a Primary School Teacher from September. I had a previous placement in a SEN school where I learnt some Makaton and I really enjoyed this and found it useful. I wanted to expand on this and learn some BSL over the summer - a skill that could both support my teaching and be shared with my class.
    • I thought that you may like to see a video - produced during the lockdown - featuring 200 young musicians from the Chiltern Music Academy performing a song called 'There's a Power in the Music' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMLyQSzvLxU The video incudes one of our students who is currently learning to sign. For more information about Chiltern Music Academy visit www.chilternmusicacademy.org Thank you Andy  
    • Hi, my name is Emma and I decided to start the BSL introducing sign language course this summer. I believe everyone has the right to communicate and as an aspiring solicitor I would love to be able to assist all the clients I may have in the future. This course means I will have a better chance of being able to advise clients who may be hard of hearing or have complete hearing loss. 
    • Hi all, I am a Teaching assistant in an FS2 class from September and will be providing SEND support to pupils with various needs, including communication difficulties.  I am trying to learn BSL to help these children communicate more effectively
