About the seminar
This seminar is scheduled for 2 weeks.
Week 1. Research with Synchronous Online Interviews: Design Factors
Thinking about key questions such as:
- Why collect data with synchronous online interviews?
- What ethical issues must be addressed? What will the institutional or ethics reviewers want to know?
- What sampling approach should I use?
Consider important issues before beginning online interviews, including:
- Should I use a structured, semi-structured or unstructured interview style?
- How do decisions about the interview approach relate to the selection of communications technology?
