Abstract Title: The Advantages and Disadvantages of Virtual Qualitative Interviewing
Abstract Type: Contributed Poster Presentation
Abstract: When the Fluids Conceptual Evaluation (FCE) Team submitted our research grant proposal to the NSF IUSE program in February of 2020, we had no way of knowing that when we received the grant in October 2020, that we had to adapt our research methodology for COVID-19.  Originally, we had planned on traveling to 17 institutions to collect interview data for the qualitative portion of our development.  Unfortunately, with COVID this was no longer possible.  We elected to switch to Zoom virtual interviews. Over the last two years we have collected over 40 virtual interviews.  Ironically, due to COVID, many of the individuals we interviewed were familiar with Zoom and this removed the final barrier for conducting virtual Zoom interviews. In this poster, I will highlight some of the major advantages and disadvantages in conducting virtual interviews with Zoom.
