Electronic diaries: • - not regular input and had to be careful of pushing for information because of their own pressures with preparation etc • - at the start began as diary entries including some advice seeking but became more as reflective diary entries • Interviews and focus groups were much more successful

  7. My Role

  8. My Role • Mentor/Lecturer sometimes mixed with researcher by participants in electronic diaries where they asked for advice. • Had to be acknowledged by me throughout including in the application for ethical clearance • This relationship though allowed for rich data because of • Comfort in speaking with and in front of me • Trust – in me • - in my research as they really wanted their experiences to be shared with others.

  9. However • My own reflective account: • Discourse of care • Discourse of motherhood • Difficulty in role switching

  10. Outcome • Rich data • Participants and researcher learned from each other • in the use of technology • from the data collected • The COP was identified by the participants • A community of practice was developed amongst the participants.
