The Doing Qualitative Research Online Virtual Book Tour includes stops across the globe.
Maynooth University in County Kildare, Ireland!
The first stop on the Doing Qualitative Research Online Virtual Book Tour was the Advanced Digital Research Methods class lead by Aphra Kerr of the Sociology Department in Maynooth University, Ireland. We discussed “Eliciting Data with Online Interviews or Focus Groups.” This class is part of their MA in Sociology (Internet and Society) course.Further information on the course can be found here and you can visit Aphra’s webpage. She is on Twitter at @aphrak and the Department is @MU_Sociology.
University of Stirling in Glasgow, Scotland.
I visited the Theory and Methods of Digital Social Research class at the University of Stirling, in Glasgow,Scotland. It is great to exchange ideas with bright and curious students who are looking at the possibilities for using digital methods in social research.

A week-long series of events for educators and students across Africa, through e/merge Africa! Log in to E/merge Africa and access archived materials and recordings. I presented one webinar for faculty who teach research methods or use research activities in their courses: “Getting Started: Teaching Online Research Design Basics.” I presented a second webinar for researchers, “Enacted Approaches for Generating Data with Arts-Based & Participatory Methods.” This webinar focused on the use of creative, interactive online methods.

We discussed creative and arts-based methods. I created a short exercise guide for visual techniques you can use with your group or class.
This session included both an overview of online methods and a focus on eliciting data with interviews.

Doing Qualitative Research Online suggests a new way to think about qualitative research design in the digital world.
I am booking stops on a virtual book tour to introduce Doing Qualitative Research Online. We will explore and discuss practical strategies for teaching a course or workshop with the book, or designing research using the approaches described in the book. At each stop on the tour I will offer a free one-hour webinar, and during the subsequent week I will share resources and answer questions in an asynchronous discussion. Follow the tour here– I’ll post descriptions of each new site and add locations to the map!
