Abstract

Conducting research is a complex process, and with the new normal changes, everything becomes constrained and drastically different from the normal.  This study investigates the challenges encountered and coping strategies of Physical Education students in conducting Research in Physical Education in the new normal set-up. This study used a qualitative case study design to provide a comprehensive and in-depth description of the bounded phenomena as experienced by physical education students. A semi-structured interview was used to collect relevant data for the study, which was then processed qualitatively using thematic analysis. Purposive sampling was used in selecting the participants for this study.  Consequently, the results of the study revealed that the emerging challenges encountered by physical education students in conducting research in the new normal set-up are unstable internet connection, participants poor level of cooperation towards the researchers, poor level of cooperation between research partners, and difficulty in time management. This study shows that in response to these circumstances, individuals created individual coping mechanisms to handle the difficulties that made their research experience more challenging. Participants find that effective time management, working cooperatively, making alternative solutions, acceptance, good communication and making use of the internet help them modify and address unforeseen issues during the entire research process. As a result, several of these tactics are recommended to prospective students who may do research under the new normal setup. They are advised to be flexible, work with your groupmates, have patience, do not be afraid to ask for help.
