Focus Group Discussion (FGD) 2018
This year was the third-year where the students from Monash University Australia came down to Segamat to learn the research methods at SEACO and its approach to community-based research. The local community was invited to take part in a small-scale group research project, led by research and academic supervisors, Dr. Warren and Dr. Missingham. The students took interest in the local people’s life experiences, aspirations and attitude toward community issues such as health and illness (including women’s health), community relationships, and how people make a living to support their families. A group of SEACO’s staff took part as facilitators and translators. This project gives SEACO’s staff the opportunity to work with the international students and at the same time gain valuable knowledge.
