I was invited to give a webinar as part of the part of the Fall Qualitative Research & Innovation Webinar Series presented by NVivo and SAGE Publications. While there are many options, in this webinar we explored varied ways to collect data with participants. The recording is now online, so feel free to view or share! You can also view my previous Nvivo webinar, When the Field is Online.

Connecting for Collecting Data: Qualitative Research Online with Human Participants


When the Field is Online


We are accustomed to communicating electronically, and since Covid 19 our skills have been put to the test! We talk and type, we send pictures to stay connected while we are unable to visit in person. We use videoconferencing with groups and videochats with family and friends. We text chat, send messages through social media sites, and post to groups. We are immersed in virtual field trips in lieu of travel.

How can we use these modes of communication to collect data? How do we prepare for research that means talking with real people who are on the other side of the screen? In this webinar we will explore ways to design and conduct ethically-sound qualitative research online, including 1-1 or group interviews, observation, and/or arts-based and creative methods.
