Description
Online Interviews for Active Online Learning by Janet Salmons, PhD

Communications technologies allow us to keep in touch with far-flung friends and family, to work remotely, and to teach and learn online. We probably make different choices for the technology we use when we want to see the new baby across the country, versus when we are trying to finish a report we are writing with a colleague who is in another part of the world. Similarly, when we decide to use online communications technologies for research interviews, we need to make numerous decisions about which mode best supports the goal of the exchange. Then, we need to decide how to go about conducting the interview given that technology-- how to create trust, develop rapport, and ask questions that will generate rich answers. Even though we may feel comfortable with our skills to communicate online, doing interviews requires another level of thinking and planning. How do we learn such skills? The availability of online communications tools means we can use e-interviews as experiential learning exercises in classes to achieve curricular goals as well as to develop online research skills.

This session will focus on use of online interviews in a) research methods courses to give students practice in planning and conducting interviews and b) in courses on other topics, where instructors want to bring real-world expertise into the discussion by having students interview practitioners. In either case, they are learning scholarly research skills in addition to course content. Sample exercises will be offered, that you can adapt for your own classes.
