This course provides an introduction to the theory and practice of qualitative interviewing in both academic and applied social research. The course is primarily designed for researchers with little or no experience of qualitative interviewing. It will also be useful for more experienced researchers who have little formal training; or who wish to reflect on their practice. The course leaders are very experienced social researchers who will draw on their own research as well as established practice within the social sciences; and are happy to answer specific concerns of course participants.
The day combines a brief introduction to theory; practical tips on recruiting, sampling and carrying out qualitative interviews; and practical exercises on developing an interview guide and carrying out a qualitative interview. We will explore a variety of ethical issues as they arise in discussion.
(Please note, the analysis of qualitative interviews is not covered in this course).
