#OTalk Research 6th December 2016 – In-depth Interviews

The chat will be hosted by OTalk research team member Lynne Goodacre  (@lynnegoodacre) supported by OTalk research team member Emma Hooper (@hooper_ek).

Conducting in-depth interviews is one of the most common approaches to data collection utilised by qualitative researchers. The underlying rationale for using this method is to explore in detail the experiences and perspectives of others, the meaning people attribute to their experiences and how people make sense of the world. This weeks OTalk will provide an opportunity to explore this method of data collection and share experiences and expertise.

Some points we will be exploring during the chat will be:

To get us started – what research context are you using or planning to use interviews in?

How do you decide what questions to ask to inform your interview schedule?

How do you decide who to include in your sample?

What practical factors need to be considered when planning to conduct interviews?

What ethical issues need to considered when undertaking interviews?

Whether you are in the process of planning your research, in the midst of collecting data or interested in understanding more about this method we have a lot to learn from each other. So I hope you will join in.
