I just wanted to say that yesterday afternoon I finally received ethics approval from Monash University. This means that I’m one step closer to beginning the research data collection process. Am I excited? Absolutely!
I now have to wait for the Catholic Education Melbourne office to approve my ethics application. After that, I get to send a letter to the principal of the school at which I will be doing the research. This is the easy part as the principal is supportive of the project and willing to give me time and place to carry it out. There are so many hoops to go through before one can actually do research and mine is quite straight forward. I cannot imagine the process for those dealing with more complicated forms of research.
Once permission letters are signed off by the school, the recruitment process begins. I’ll keep you posted.
Thanks for reading 🙂
