As a qualitative method, interviewing can generate wonderfully rich and nuanced data, but it requires considerable social, listening and questioning skills. This one-day course is designed to help participants become aware of and practise some of the techniques involved. As well as a grounding in the principles of semi-structured and in-depth interviewing, participants will gain hands-on experience of conducting interviews, acting as an interviewee, and giving and receiving detailed feedback. Some knowledge of qualitative research or attendance on the design day is advisable.
During the course we will cover:
Dr Karen Lumsden is Associate Professor in Criminology at the University of Leicester and has a PhD in Sociology from the University of Aberdeen.
