The workshop addresses participants who are quite unexperienced in procedures of conducting qualitative interviews. We want to do some exercises in the theory and the practice of interviewing. Thus, we want to see: What are the main postulates in this kind of qualitative research and what are the most frequent mistakes?

At the first, we will build are theoretical basement. What are the characteristics of qualitative and quantitative interviewing? You will learn about the different kinds of interviews and the variety of questions. (This part is hold in German, because it depends on the grammar of every language!) Furthermore, the course covers a broader view of the specifics of interviews with so called experts. You will practice to conduct own “public” interviews based on your research and will collect several routine in conducting qualitative interviews.

You have to register for the 4th International Research Workshop to participate in this course.
