Focus Groups information for participants

I’d like to invite you to participate in a focus group discussing gene drive, an emerging genetic technology. All participants will receive a £50 book voucher as a thank you for participating. If you decide to take part, we’ll invite you to join an online focus group discussion with up to 7 other teachers for up to 90 minutes. You will also need to watch a short film (18 minutes) and read two short newspaper articles in advance. Participants will decide together when it might be best to schedule the focus group but this is likely to be in November.

Our study looks at the views of English and Science teachers on how to best discuss this novel and controversial technology. Your participation is part of a global study to help us understand how to communicate about new technologies across cultures. I’ve attached more information to this email and am happy to answer any questions you might have.

If you would like to participate, please email by 19th November.

If you have colleagues who are English or Science teachers at secondary schools, please feel free to forward this message to them.

Many thanks,



Dr Aleksandra Stelmach
