In the first quarter of 2021 we are exploring design steps, starting with a January focus on research questions. In February we focused on Choosing Methodology and Methods, and will continue with more posts on these research decisions. For March, the focus is on Designing an Ethical Study.


Qualitative Online Interviews

The UK’s National Center for Research Methods has published a free Wayfinder Guide to Adapting Interview Practices for Covid-19.

The guide references my book Qualitative Online Interviews: Strategies, Design, and Skills (2014). This book was ahead of its time! Qualitative Online Interviews, includes guidance on designing and conducting studies using a wide range of synchronous and asynchronous technologies for interviews, creative and visual methods, and observations. 

Cases in Online Interview Research

Cases in Online Interview Research includes contributed examples that use a wide range of technologies, from blogs to videoconferencing to virtual worlds, with analysis of decisions and methods.

Doing Qualitative Research Online

Doing Qualitative Research Online goes a step further, with inclusion of methods that use extant, creative and performative ways to use technology in data collection. A new edition of Doing Qualitative Research Online will be available in 2021.
