Interviews and data. The interviews would be one-on-one and semi-structured.  The semi-structured interviews will allow the researcher to probe the participant for more detailed information as the interview progresses.  The data would be collected using a video recorder.  The recording would be transcribed at a later time so that no information is missed on what the interviewee said and did (non-verbal cues).  The recordings and transcriptions would be stored on a secure server and used for the interview analysis.  NVIVO software will be used for the analysis to assist with finding the themes among the interviewee answers.
