Title of the presentation:
The art of interviewing
Short abstract of the presentation:
Learning how to set up and conduct a good interview is a skill that most aspiring researchers need to acquire. It is a skill that tends to be under-rated in many post-grad research-training programmes. This workshop is designed to help students develop and hone their interviewing techniques by providing a series of helpful hints about ‘Do’s and Don’ts’ when interviewing. Among other things, students will be invited to consider the particular purposes that interviews can be made to serve and how they can be used to complement other research techniques. The final part of the workshop will be given over to a practical exercise in which students will be given the opportunity to practise their interviewing techniques on fellow participants.
