In order to understand someone you have to see that person’s perspective and when trying to interview one person or a large group of people, that can only be done if the interview is in-depth. As the article says, “Often, deeper understandings are developed through the dialogue of long, in-depth interviews, as interviewer and participant ‘coconstruct’ meaning” (pg. 124). I really enjoyed how this article went into full detail about the many types of
Author The researchers were an assistant professor and a professor. It showed that they had the ability in doing this research. Abstract The abstract clearly and concisely summarized the main features of the report. According to Parahoo (quoted in Coughlan, Cronin and Ryan, 2007), this may attract readers’ interest and allowed readers to decide whether or not to continue reading. However, the abstract might be too lengthy.
Survey- through the use of this methodology I can gain a wide variety of answers and information both quantitative and qualitative. 2. Structured interview- through this I can receive a much deeper personal insight into the topic of synaesthesia and the effects it has on these people. 3. Focus group- with this methodology I can gain a mix of opinions through conversation and casual interactions to see if anyone changes their mind and to gain detailed information on the subject.
There are many different Methodologies used the most common two are Qualitative Research * To gain an understanding of underlying reasons and motivations * Generating ideas for later quantitative research * To uncover trends in thought and opinion This is done through in depth Interviews, focus groups and case studies (Appendix T1) It’s finding out not just what people think and feel but why they think and feel it. It’s about getting people to talk about their opinions so you can understand their motivations and feelings. Quantitative Research * To quantify data and generalize results from a large sample group of people * To measure the incidence of various views and opinions in a chosen group This is done through online questionnaires, on-street or telephone interviews with a large number of people.
Aiv 1. Offer information sessions or training from researchers to those practitioners involved who you feel would benefit in gaining the knowledge needed to understand the different systems used to record information. 2. Offer shadowing periods where you can explain the different systems used to record information. They can then then observe and practice them, whilst you monitor them as they use them.
Examine reasons why some sociologists choose to use interviews when conducting their research. Sociologists tend to carry out researches which are relevant to the study being inspected. This helps them to gather the data, correlations and confirms theories needed to fulfil certain questions. A way to find out specific research can be done through certain types of interviews, which are: * Structured Interviews - formal * Unstructured Interviews – informal * Semi-Structured Interviews – in-between formal & informal * Group Interviews An interview can involve the researcher asking subject-based questions to receive the information they need to know. They are scheduled as a part of a social scheme as the questions are being communicated through verbal use with the respondent.
It was felt that the best way to manage this would be to conduct the survey one on one with the participants. This allows communication and interaction between the surveyor and participant. The duties of the interviewer during the questionnaire are to ask the survey questions, document the responses of each individual participant, explain any questions that the participant may be confused about, and most importantly, make the participant feel comfortable answering the questions honestly. The survey participant was also provided instructions before taking the survey detailing the intentions of the survey. This allowed the participant to prepare themselves for the specific type of questions that would be asked.
This conversational manner obtains better cooperation than clinically going through each individual question. The interview guide aligns with the full discovery question set and permits the assessor to engage the interviewees in conversation. As key points are covered, the assessor may mark down cues to responses. The assessor may then complete the full question set on his or her own. This may seem somewhat labor intensive on the part of the
Guessing and controversy, allows to test the amount of information one knows about the topic, creating interest on the topic and opening possibilities for research. Controversy, finding an opposite point of view and try to argue it. This is possibly my favorite of these strategies, because by looking at other points of view pushes me to analyze that point of view and search for further information to prove my point right. Contradiction happens when an established points of view is faced to opposing facts and the need for more research takes place. I believe this strategies could be effective, because they allow a person to broaden their knowledge base all though
