Conducting Research in the Online Sphere


Ever considered conducting your research online? Or perhaps you want to adapt and conduct your research online during social distancing restrictions? Whether interviewing people using online meeting platforms like Zoom or conducting fieldwork in the wild lands of Facebook or Twitter, there are both project design and ethical practicalities that need to be considered.

To get you started, Dr Tom Baudinette (Faculty of Arts ECR Representative) and Dr Karolyn White (Director, Research Ethics and Integrity) will run a workshop on the fundamentals of conducting research online. Tom will discuss his own experiences, as well as considerations for research project design, and the benefits and limitations of researching in the online sphere. And Karolyn will discuss the ethical considerations that need to be addressed.
