Executive Summary: Design and Evaluation of Contexts of Participation Interactive resource
The resource was designed in conjunction with a web developer and was evaluated in a two-stage process with a small group of selected evaluators. The evaluators represented service users, students, clinicians and educators. At the initial evaluation suggestions were made for future development and following improvement and further development a final evaluation was carried out using a questionnaire and focus group. The questionnaires were analysed and compared to the initial evaluation to determine progress. The transcribed focus group was subjected to a three-stage analysis to draw out key themes.
Evaluations suggested that the project was successful in producing a good initial product which met the aims of being useful, credible, appealing, coherent and accessible, help develop theory and be transferable across disciplines. There is still scope for improvement and some work needs to be done before it can be disseminated to other institutions as a finished product. There is potential for collaboration to develop the resource for use in research. There is also potential for further development of the resource into a major project.
- The authors are currently seeking potential partners who may be interested in being part of a larger project bid to evaluate the use of the interactive tool in a variety of higher education learning contexts. For further information on the resource or to express interest in participating in the project please contact Rayya Ghul by email.
