Summary of Webinar 1
This webinar focuses on collecting qualitative data using digital methods.
In 2020 Rebecca Whiting and Katrina Pritchard's book of Collecting Qualitative Data Using Digital Methods was published at SAGE.
In this session, based on this book, Rebecca and Katrina will use examples from their own research to:
- reflexively explore collecting qualitative data using digital methods
- discuss challenges
- examine future developments
