Today's tech-savvy students are accustomed to social interaction on the Internet, in immersive virtual environments, and over mobile devices. When they think about interacting with research, participants should not be surprised when they propose to do so online. Students may know how to use the tools, but do they know how to use them for research? While social conversation and research interviews share some characteristics, the purpose, protocol, and context are quite different.
This web seminar will explore the design of credible, ethical online research interviews. We will look at e-research from a faculty perspective. The content is relevant for instructors or mentors who teach classes or chair committees.
