In this course, participants will learn the basics of qualitative interviewing. We will work with a standard guided interviewing technique. In three sessions we will cover issues of research design (research questions and case selection), designing interview guidelines, conducting interviews, and analyzing qualitative interview data. The structure of the course follows a workshop format, with participants practicing design, interviewing, and analytic skills in individual and group exercises.

Participants who attend this workshop will have familiarized themselves with relevant methodological and practical issues of qualitative interviewing and gathered first experiences designing, conducting, and analyzing qualitative interviews.

Basic knowledge on methods of empirical social research are required. No previous knowledge on qualitative methods is necessary.

You have to register for the 10th International Research Workshop to participate in this course.
