“Welcome! Please introduce yourself“: We have 12 introductions from colleagues who want to use online interviews as part of their research in varied disciplines including educational technology, adult education, higher education, information systems, nursing education and digital literacies. If you haven’t introduced yourself yet this is a good place to make yourself known to other seminar participants
“What are research interviews? How can we use them in instruction and research?”: Janet Salmons introduces online research interviews and an E-Interview Research Framework which she developed to offer “a conceptual system of key questions about interrelated facets of online interview research”. In this topic she also shares the first chapter of her book “Qualitative Online Interviews” as well as a video introduction to the framework.
“Think through the choice to interview online”: Janet Salmons offers “three ways to think about this choice, with the information and communications technology (ICT) serving as medium, setting, or phenomenon.” She invites us to “think about an idea for a study you’d like to conduct … then post a comment describing your own motivations for conducting online interviews.”
We look forward to meeting you in the forum. We will announce new times for the rescheduled online meetings as soon as these are available.
