Research in progress
Alison Black and Sue Walker will be attending a working group meeting of the European-Union funded project E-Read (Evolution of reading in the age of digitisation) in Ljubljana. The aim of the project is to better understand the implications of digitisation on reading, and this meeting is a first step in that process. It will bring together European researchers to share the outcomes of their current research and plan future research together.
Topically, we are in the early stages of developing an e-book version of the Berkshire Healthcare Dementia Carer’s Handbook. The original handbook was developed for the family carers of people diagnosed with dementia, but its success has led to requests for wider distribution and, hence, Health Education Thames Valley are funding this new development which we will be working on over the next few months.
