This session will consider three different types of interviewing (structured, semi-structured and unstructured), but with a particular focus on semi-structured or 'qualitative' interviewing. Other issues covered will include the nature of interview questions, the design and structure of an effective interview schedule and the mechanics of conducting a successful interview (with different people and to deliver on our research aims). The idea is to share experiences, knowledge and potential 'tricks-of-the-trade'. Time will be allowed for raising questions and/or issues pertinent to your own PhD studies.
