In the Stakeholder Interview and Reflection Assignment, you will interview a person who has a vested interest in the research problem you are investigating. You will submit a document to the dropbox with the following information:
In Chapter 1, we learned that a stakeholder is a person who has an interest or stake in a problem relevant to society (Repko, Szostak, & Buchberger, 2017). The authors recommend that researchers look to such stakeholders for their insights and expertise. Therefore, you will identify a person who has a vested interest in the research problem you are investigating and ask them questions to help you better understand the problem. For example, if your research problem is how to reduce the incidence of Type 2 diabetes in adolescents, appropriate stakeholders would be a doctor, nurse, patient, or caregiver with experience with the disease.
Use the questions below to interview a stakeholder associated with your problem.
Upon completion of the interview, please write a report of the stakeholder’s responses to your interview questions.
After writing up the responses to the interview questions, write a reflection of the interview experience. The reflection should share some of the insights that you discovered about the problem through the interview process and some of the additional thoughts that were inspired regarding the problem due to some of the stakeholder’s responses. Your response to each bulleted question should be approximately 100 words (a 4-5 sentence paragraph).
Part 1 and Part 2 should be included in the same document, which you will submit to the Stakeholder Interview and Reflection Dropbox.
