In the Field for Grad Students: How to do Qualitative Interviews, Start to Finish Online

Interviews. Don’t we already know how to do interviews? What’s so special about talking to people? What’s the difference between talking to someone and conducting an interview? Humans are chatty creatures and we exchange information and ideas all the time in conversation. But in research, qualitative interviews – no matter your discipline or research area – require more care, an art unto itself.

Join two experienced scholars and practitioners who have years of experience working of “in the field,” formally and informally interviewing people with different lived experiences, in a variety of settings, for a range of applications (including print publications, podcasts, radio features, documentary films and more). They offer tips, tools, and anecdotes from working in the field.

Learn about how to prepare for your own qualitative interviews, hear about recording interviews for your scholarly research and also future proofing those recordings for other forms of dissemination like podcasts and radio features. Find out about the ins and outs of interviewing folks for your research, from finding interviewees, designing questions, developing rapport, the complexities of ethics, data management, and transcriptions – and everything in between.
