Two day block training.
This course will involve practically-oriented sessions to explore a variety of individual and group interview approaches. This will include focus groups as well as structured, semi-structured, and more open-ended styles of interviewing (including narrative approaches). It will also consider the use of stimulus material, vignettes, and critical incidents as possible ways of structuring interview interactions. Sessions will include practical demonstrations of interviewing, and will involve the analysis of interview transcripts, along with published research papers, which use different analytical approaches. Among a range of issues that will be considered, it will discuss some of the ethical issues that can arise when this type of fieldwork is being conducted, and there will be plenty of opportunity for group members to draw upon their own research experiences within this and other discussions. This is a hands-on course.
This course is suitable for MA and PhD students or other participants wanting to enhance their training in this area. Prior study of qualitative methods, including their theoretical and conceptual underpinning, at Masters level or equivalent is required in order to take this module.
