Asynchronous Narrative Audio-Messages: An Internet-Based Qualitative Method for Data Collection in International Research

Publications: Contribution to bookChapterPeer Reviewed

Abstract

The postdigital era is witness to significant changes in (digital) communication. The opportunities this brings for research, however, have not yet been extensively explored. This chapter elaborates on current international developments around digitalization and examines the need for corresponding research methods in the social sciences. Following an overview of internet-based data collection methods, Kleinlein introduces the new method of Asynchronous Narrative Audio-Messages (ANAs), which facilitates comprehensive qualitative research in the postdigital era. A critical reflection on the facilitating and constraining effects of the method illustrates its potential areas of use. Finally, the practical implementation of the method is illustrated by an ongoing international research project that focuses on inclusive schooling practices of teachers from a transcultural perspective.
