I am Jenny Wilkins, an EdD student at Northeastern University in the United States. I am writing to ask for your help in soliciting student participation in my dissertation study.
This qualitative inquiry study is about homeschooled high school students’ experience with transitioning to college. Results of this study will be used to finish my Doctor of Education dissertation, help legislators better understand homeschoolers’ need for higher education, and help future families that participate in experimental education be better prepared for college. The criteria for student participants are: (1) they must be a full-time, 1st-year (enrolled full time for at least 6 months) or 2nd-year student attending a Taiwanese college who had been homeschooled during high school; and (2) they must be enrolled in a Taiwanese university, including the outer islands (Kingman and PungHu islands). There will be two interviews with each participant, each session lasting from 45–60 minutes. The meetings will be conducted utilizing online meeting tools. The schedule can be set based on the student’s convenience.
Please forward potential participants’ names, phone numbers, emails, or other contact method to me and I will contact them directly to give them further details. You can reach me at by email. Thank you!
