Professor Helen Partridge, a Visiting Fellow at the Oxford Internet Institute, is looking for Twitter users to participate in her research. Her invitation is below:


Dear Colleague

Professor Christine Bruce and I are conducting a research project that aims to investigate people's experience of information literacy in social media.  In particular we are investigating the information experiences of people who use Twitter in their everyday life (e.g not just for study or work).

If you use Twitter in your everyday life than we would like to invite you to participate in an interview to share your experiences using this tool to seek, obtain, use and share information.

Interviews will be conducted in person at a mutually agreeable time (in Oxford) and should take around 30 to 60 minutes.  You will also be invited to take part in an online observation activity and a second follow up in person interview that will take approximately 30 minutes.

I have attached a flyer containing further information about the project. Should you be agreeable to participating in this study, would you please contact me by return email so that we can arrange a time for the interview?

Please note this project has been approved by the QUT Human Research Ethics Committee (approval number 1100000612).

Kind regards

Professor Helen Partridge | Coordinator Library & Information Science Education
Faculty of Science and Technology | Information Sciences Discipline | QUT | 07 3138 9047 | 126 Margaret St Level 9 Rm 918, Brisbane, Q, 4000
