This seminar is intended for researchers who seek a general introduction in developing interview questions, and conducting qualitative interviews. Through lecturing, practical exercises in small groups and discussion of specific examples of qualitative interviews, participants will be stimulated to critically reflect on and develop a deeper understanding of the qualitative interview process. While this session focuses particularly on the process of developing interview questions and the practice of conducting interviews with respondents in a face-to-face situation, it will discuss broader issues related to the process of conducting qualitative interviews, such as: characteristics of different types of qualitative interviews (face-to-face interviews, group-interviews, focus-groups, elite-interviews), (theoretical) sampling in qualitative interviews, initial analysis of qualitative interview data and ethical issues in conducting interviews. In the morning participants will be given a thorough introduction in the process of qualitative interviewing through a discussion of real examples of qualitative research by the lecturer. In the afternoon, participants will be asked to make exercises individually and in group to obtain more hands-on experience in developing and conducting qualitative interviews. Finally, through classroom discussions, students will be given time to ask questions and/or discuss issues related to their own experience in developing and conducting qualitative interviews for their research.
