Technological advancements have created new methods for conducting research. In this article,we explore the benefits and challenges of using participant-produced video diaries as a researchmethod in a remote environment. Participant-produced video diaries provide rich ethnographicdata of lived experiences. Moreover, video diaries allow data collection without researchersneeding to be physically present, which facilitates research in remote locations. Therefore, wechose video diaries as one method of data collection for our study of a leadership programmefor women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine conducted inAntarctica. However, the remote location of this study raised methodological challenges beyondthe routine issues associated with video diaries. In this article, we critically reflect on thesechallenges, highlighting implications for using participant-produced video diaries in other remotesettings.
