INNOVATIVE DATA COLLECTION METHODS FOR RESEARCH IN THE DIGITAL ERA
Keywords:Teacher Education, Quantitative research, Qualitative research, Online methods of data collection
Data collection is a very important stage in social science research. In social science research, the data collection stage is very patient and challenging. The data collection methods are an important part of the research. During the collection of data, a researcher should identify the appropriate method of data collection based on the type and source of the data. If the researcher does not use the proper data collection method, they will encounter many difficulties while gathering the data, which may have an impact on their research. Therefore, the selection of data collection methods should be done with the utmost care. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, collecting face-to-face primary data from the research population was better. But when the social distancing era started, data collection in the traditional way in the field of teacher education became a challenging task for researchers. The researchers used several online data collection methods to deal with these challenges. Therefore, in this paper, researchers tried to identify online data collection methods for conducting the study or investigation in teacher education during the COVID-19 era.
