This book provides cutting-edge content from authors who are experts, and a rich source of information that isn't available elsewhere.
This book offers a considerable amount of detail and discussion of the possibilities of digital tools and techniques, together with useful resources for students who are considering these options.
In our current digital age, Paulus and Lester have brought us a great resource for finding new ways to take advantage of the digital tools that are right before us!
This is a great resource for all researchers to start to understand the use of digital tools in research, and to gain broader sense of how to engage with data.
Far from being a book for researchers only, it offers useful guidance for evaluators who wish to learn more about how new technologies can transform evaluation practices and be used to create robust evaluation workflows, both in times of COVID-19 and beyond, as we engage new contexts and perspectives and continue to reshape our understanding of ‘fieldwork'.
This text is packed with relevant topics related to engaging in qualitative research in today’s digital world. Regardless of whether one is simply aiming to use digital tools alongside research processes or wishes to research in digital spaces, this text anchors the reader in relevant, critical discourse of qualitative digital tools and spaces.
Conducting and reporting evaluations can be stressful, especially in the context of the global pandemic (Maloney, 2020). With the COVID-19 restrictions, evaluators had a problem in common with researchers and teachers: How to make the most of the digital environment of our clients in gathering data and communicating. The new SAGE book Doing Qualitative Research in a Digital World (Paulus & Lester, 2022) should be a useful resource in adapting our data collection and analyses to the continuing digital context.
This is a great text for graduate level students getting introduced to educational research.
Wonderful resource for use during the time of COVID. Adopted and used for Qualitative Research, and also used for Dissertation students/advisees. Very much liked the format and addressing the concerns and needs of the researcher in the text.
