The research design is limited in that the study only focused on motivation of students with respect to EAP volunteering while there are many other communities involved volunteering students can take part in. Furthermore, the study design only collects data in the form of survey questionnaire while much more relevant data can be collected by direct interviews. More personal opinions and also data in the form of attitudinal information could have been collected.
Student volunteer segments have much to contribute, however not all volunteering agencies have enhanced recruiting approaches. The volunteering organization considered for this research is the EAP. EAP wants to increase the number of student volunteers it has at present by expanding into the international segment. This research aimed to critically analyze and identify the ways international student volunteering segment can be increased for EAP. The role of social media tools in such an expansion is investigated.
The data is collected by means of the Primary data collection technique. Primary data is more significant for the research as it will help in collecting more current data on the subject under analysis. Also data being collected is specific to the purpose. For the mixed research method both closed and open ended questions are used. The open ended questions will be used to gather for qualitative data and the closed ended questions will be useful for gathering qualitative data. The purpose of using multiple forms of data drawing is to critically analyse the situation as much as possible from the participant perspective.
