Developing and Delivering Interview Questions

Thursday, April 18, 2024, 3:00pm - 4:30pm
Cabot Library
Harvard ID required, Workshop,

Registration is required. There are 30 seats available.

Attend this workshop if you're beginning to draft a qualitative research interview guide, are ready to revise your first draft, or are poised to begin interviewing your participants. Together, we will explore the role of your purpose statement, central research question, review of the relevant literature, and theory questions to the development and operationalization of your interview questions. We will examine different types of questions and the kinds of responses they tend to elicit, as well as problematic question framing. Best practices for the interview conversation will also be introduced, including recommended literature on interviewing dynamics. Finally, you will experience a micro-interview from the perspective of both an interviewer and an interviewee.

This 90-minute workshop will take place on campus in Cambridge (Cabot Library; lower level Instruction Room).

Registered attendees will receive a reminder via email 1 day prior to the workshop. Registration closes 1 day prior to the event.*
*In case there is still space available after registration has closed, you may email rcrawford@fas.harvard.edu to indicate your interest. Be sure to put “LATE REGISTRATION” in the subject line. If there is space available, you will receive the room location.
