New workshop: Qualitative Interviewing

Interviewing people about their work and live leads to insights about the structure of their work or live. These insights can be directly translated into services and products that closely match the requirements of what people want or need. From the interview we want to know how people are organized and whether they do things in the same way as another person. How people divide their work and live into activities, goals, different strategies and individual steps. At an early stage in the research or development project many details will become clear about the structure of work or live that might show several issues (in context) on any kind of subject.
Interviews within qualitative research areĀ  semi-structured and have a student-master approach; the interviewer is the student and the interviewee the master. The ultimate goal is to get the best out of the interviews through techniques such as asking the right kind of questions, observing and listening skills and to gain insights from the story people tell.
