Visual Evidence in Qualitative Research: The Role of Videorecording
Penn-Edwards, Sorrel
Qualitative Report, v9 n2 p266-277 Jun 2004
Videorecording allows the researcher to record and replay the pictures and sound of an event. As such, it can be a valuable research tool. Nevertheless, it is not just a simple measuring instrument. As a qualitative research data gathering tool, videorecordings should be authenticated. Researchers should indicate clearly the role of this tool in their work and discuss the factors that may have an influence on the way it is used or on the data analysed. The substance of these factors is shown in inventoried form. This paper discusses these and advises how researchers may address the validity of videorecording as a qualitative research tool.
