Throughout the whole process of research and information gathering for our project, we used many methods to acquire these information and eventually make them into sound conclusions. These are the steps that we took to obtain information.
- Literature Reviews
- Case studies
- Media Reports / Newspaper Articles
Firstly, the literature reviews ensured that we had the basic knowledge of our project to start with and hence be able to understand more complicated stuff such as the various nomenclature involved.
Next, the interviews we conducted with the relevant people were to allow us to understand from their point of view the situation at hand and also to clarify doubts and gain additional information that could not be sourced in the initial literature review stages.
The case studies were essentially the most important part of the project since it gave us a first hand experience of the issues being elaborated by finding a particular location to evaluate and test out our findings. The Day in A Wheelchair case study was also important as it allowed us to gain a first-hand experience into the life of a wheelchair user.
Lastly but not neglected, were the media reports and newspaper articles that we obtained mainly from a local source. Although it might not totally reflect the situation in other countries, it could be used for comparisons to countries which bear some similarity to Singapore's response to wheelchair users.
Here is our project mindmap that we used for constant referencing whenever the flow and organisation of ideas were not coherent.
