Part one

Post your reflection and analysis on what you learned about interviewing. Include in your reflection and analysis:

  • At least two things you would do differently and why
  • Something new and surprising that you learned
  • A reflection about the value of interviewing as a data collection tool

* Provide additional insight you gained from your interviewing. make this in a paragraph by itself please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is something from the textbook that you can use as a source and the reference is below: Qualitative interviewing is more than a collection of techniques, technologies, questions and answers. Rubin and Rubin (2012) noted that it has the potential to change the interviewer into a more patient, tolerant, and engaged human being. “It makes you aware of what you haven’t seen before, and it enables you to pull meaningful information out of buzzing confusion” (p. 234).

Part two

  • From the data you collected and other data collection methods you studied, compare and contrast the strengths and weaknesses of at least two data collection methods. Include an explanation of your experience using these different data collection methods. Also, include an explanation of what you found difficult or challenging and why.
  • Explain how you as the researcher can ensure that your choices for data collection align with your research questions. Use your experience from Major Assignment 1 as an example (I used surveys as my data collection and interviews.)

Explain the clarity of the connection between your research question and choice of data collection methods. Is there another method that could be considered? Be sure to provide your rationale. make this in a paragraph by itself please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is something from the textbook that you can use as a source and the reference is below: As Ravitch and Carl (2016) explain, “qualitative data collection should be intentional, rigorous, and systematic” (p. 145). But in no way should be bound by rules and procedures as much as related to the lived experiences of the participants.

Please use other sources as you see fit I just gave you something from the textbook.

Reflection and Analysis on Interviewing

Part 1

After learning about interviewing, the two things that I would do differently include
utilization of the interview techniques and using the best practices when interviewing a
respondent. I have learnt that interviewing is a complex process that requires proper mastery of
the appropriate techniques to ensure conducive and flexible environment for collection of useful
and relevant information. Therefore, I will change my way of interviewing and learn to utilize
appropriate techniques like intentionally designed questions, clarifying the objectives of the
interview, flexibility as well as allowing interviewees to share their personal stories, which I had
never done before. I will further start employing best practices such as tape recording and
respecting the time limit for the interview. These new aspects will help me change my
interviewing skills completely. Something new and inspiring that I have learnt is that qualitative
interviewing is equally a rich source of data collection just like quantitative methodologies. That
qualitative interviewing has in-built credibility due to its style of approaching a problem in its
natural setting, exploring and pointing out...

I use Studypool every time I need help studying, and it never disappoints.
