Student workshop: apply qualitative methods to own project (BID0092)

How can I get the information I need for my research from my interviewees? Learn how to plan, realise and evaluate solid data collection in a scientific, targeted and ethical manner. Through an interdisciplinary exchange with other participants and experts, you will learn about other applications.

  • Based on your own research, you will build up knowledge and practice in dealing with interviews, focus group discussions and (participatory) observation.

  • You will discuss practical examples with experts from different fields (G, W, S).

  • In peer-to-peer exchanges and events with experts, you will present and discuss individual work steps and gain insights into other specialist areas.

  • You will learn strategies to adequately prepare and conduct interviews according to the situation.

  • You will develop an attitude that allows dialogue with your interlocutors to take place at eye level.
