Event description

Description

When researchers conduct qualitative interviews, their aim is to describe and understand aspects of the “lifeworld” of the interviewee (Kvale, 1996). Based on the premise that the quality of data generated from a research interview will reflect the quality of the interaction between interviewer and interviewee, this session will introduce practical interviewing techniques which should be helpful for those who are new to qualitative research interviewing.

The session will introduce techniques which facilitate,

  • effective relationship building: maximising trust and openness
  • non-directive interactions: allowing for fuller exploration of the participant’s frame of reference
  • the development of shared understandings: enabling researcher and participant to clarify meaning as the interview progresses

(Kvale, S. (1996) InterViews: An Introduction to Qualitative Research Interviewing. California: Sage.)

Access: This course is for doctoral and postdoctoral levels. The course is open to PhD Students and other research staff at the School of Media, Culture, and Society. Access for other interested researchers is subject to availability.
