Data Collection in Progress

The data collection process is coming along well.

The M-Audio Microtrack II is a joy to use! It records our interviews very clearly and effortlessly into a mp3 file, so I can load it straight away into NVivo 8. What a contrast to the "old days" of tape recording, tedious transcription, and text importing.

The interviews take less than an hour, so the process is not too taxing on my participants.

Interesting data emerging as well! Have already booked more than 10 interviews - I hope to make it to 20 to provide lots of rich data for analysis!
