    9:00 AM - 4:00 PM Effective Interviews and Focus Groups

    Interviews and focus groups are the most common methods of data collection used in qualitative research. This 1-day course provides a detailed overview of both approaches: their benefits and challenges, how to prepare, effective types of questions, key skills involved, and how to create a protocol for the interview. This is an introductory course with an applied focus meant for those who are new to conducting individual or group interviews. Participants will have opportunity to practice new knowledge and skills through role-play in small groups.  

    This is a special reading week workshop, being offered by the Laurier Summer Institute of Research Methods (LSIRM), a summer school offering introductory and advanced training in research methods organized by the Laurier Centre for Community, Research, Learning and Action (CCRLA) and the Laurier Institute for the Study of Public Opinion and Policy (LISPOP). Workshops are open to everyone.
