What is a Focus Group? A focus group is a small group of people engaged in a roundtable discussion on a selected topic. The session is led by a trained moderator who will guide the discussion to effectively obtain the opinions of all participants. Focus groups provide a useful means of assessing attitudes and feelings on a specific topic. How many students will be in each group? The participants will be grouped into zoom breakout groups of 5-8 students each so that everyone has a chance to contribute in the 2 hour session. Will my statements be held confidential? Absolutely! Your input will be used for research purposes only and never tied back to you individually. Will the focus group be recorded? Yes, the group will be both audio and video recorded. The recordings will be used internally at AAUW of Hawaiʻi and will not be released. Will I be able to see the summary of the focus group discussion? Yes. It will be emailed to the participants. Why are you asking if I am a Title IX coordinator or Title IX confidential advocate or an employee at UH System Title IX and The Office of Institutional Equity? AAUW of Hawaiʻi also want input from you but separately from the input from the students. Why are you asking for my pronoun? If possible, we would like to have gender-specific breakout groups to identify any gender-specific needs in regards to the Title IX rules and Title IX state law. ———————————————————————————————————- Please contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions.
