Between November, 2019 and April, 2020, we trained and hired four assistants for a developmental research project run by the University of Gothenburg. Our team helped to run eye-tracking studies with infants in rural Kenya, administered questionnaires, and transcribed and translated video recordings.
Since December, 2019, we have been recruiting and training research assistants to study mealtime behaviours and language development in rural Africa in collaboration with Aston University (UK), Kisii University (Kenya), and the University of Zambia. Our team has been collecting observational and questionnaire-based data as well as transcribing, translating, and coding video recordings.
In March, 2021, we joined a project on peer teaching opportunities in Kenya, Zambia, and Ethiopia run jointly by Aston University, Kisii University, the University of Zambia, and the University of Gondar (Ethiopia). In collaboration with Edutab Kenya, our team helped to design data collection tools, and has been collecting questionnaire-based and observational data on children's interactions in rural Kenya.
Since April, 2021, we have been collaborating with Edu-RD (Switzerland) to help develop a tool for recognizing and supporting children's writing skills.
