Qualitative research methods have gained more and more importance and acceptance in social sciences. Especially expert interviews, group discussions and observations are applicable for behaviour oriented research questions on individual-, group-, and organisational level. The workshop will be aligned to the individual needs with regard to their own qualitative projects or interests. Sampling, theoretical background, interview techniques, transcription and data-preparations for analyses are main topics to be concerned within the two sessions.
