Basically my first day learning a course about interview

Basically my first day learning a course about interview, I was thinking that it was just any kind of conversation between researcher and participant but at the end, I was excited that interview it is a conversation with a purpose according to Sidney and Beatrice Webb, after that it make feel that I want to go in depth what are rules of making and conducting interview with a help of recommended book called Qualitative research practice. A guide for social science students and researchers by Ritchie, Lewies, McNaughton Nicholls & Ormston. (2003) which gave me insights of the whole lecture.

Besides that our lecturers Elin and Sibylle played a small sketch during the course that sketch was highlighting many mistakes researcher make doing sometime in conducting interview like not developing the next question on the response got from participant where is good to obtain a deeper and fuller understanding of the participant’s meaning. Distractions or interruptions like phone ringing and lead to ask interviewee what has been said earlier; decide what to follow up or explore in more detail now and what to return to later; decide how to phrase the next question; pick up on nuances, hesitation, emotion and non-verbal signals; pace the interview; keep an eye on recording equipment, and deal with any distractions or interruptions that arise., also not letting interviewee speaking as she wish which are essential things for exploration the feelings, views and how she perceives all of this together help the interviewee feel respected and help the researcher to navigate the whole territory getting each information for building up the next questions.
