Qualitative research during a pandemic?

Most of my research is conducted by online ethnographic methods. Thus, when the pandemic hit, I really did not have to change anything that I used to do. This is not the same for many students, colleagues, and researchers in general. Teaching my methods class (which is not about online ethnographic methods), many of my students worried and stalled. They were in standby waiting for this pandemic to be over to initiate or continue their research.

Here are some tips I have been sharing on how to adapt qualitative research under lockdown. I will start with my 5 WAYS to adapt handout. If nothing else, do these 5 things. There are more, so feel free to comment and add what else you can do to adapt to these times. I will post more tips, links to resources, and other ideas soon!
