Tackling the Issues and Challenges of Using Video Data in Adult Literacy Research
Abasi, Ali R.; Taylor, Maurice C.
Australian Journal of Adult Learning, v47 n2 p289-307 Jul 2007
Although video has long been used as a teaching aid in adult literacy and basic education, literacy researchers seem to have ignored the potential benefits of using video as a tool that could add rigour to research. Reporting on their field experiences of an adult literacy learning study in Canada, the authors provide a narrative account of their use of video as a data collection tool. The article describes the methodological challenges associated with the use of video data and the procedures that were used to analyse video records in their adult literacy research.
