Seminar date: 6/9/2022
Description: The COVID-19 pandemic forced a number of changes to the qualitative research cycle, including an increased use of technology-mediated approaches to qualitative research. These more digital research workflows have opened up new data sources (e.g., chats alongside video), normalized some underutilized data sources (e.g. video recording), and confounded traditional data collection methods (e.g., direct observation and site visits). These changes have generated questions about information security and privacy, rigor, and equity. The presenters will explore some of these modifications and innovations using case studies of research projects that had to transition to, or begin with, COVID-sensitive processes. The presentation will end with resources for our continued engagement with virtual qualitative methods.
Researchers, practitioners, leaders, or policy makers with an interest in conducting or understanding qualitative methods.
