Review: Interviewing as Qualitative Research: A Guide for Researchers in Education and the Social Sciences


Interviewing as Qualitative Research: A Guide for Researchers in Education and the Social Sciences Interviewing as Qualitative Research: A Guide for Researchers in Education and the Social Sciences by Irving Seidman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Quite a good read on conducting interviews as part of educational research. It does seem to focus on phenomenological interviews, where the interview is the one and only approach, but it might be useful for other cases where interviews are one of many ways of data gathering. As I read this book I started to think more about how to best operationalize my interviews for data gathering.  The author assumes that you don't know your subjects at all with this method (and I think that's generally the case), but in my case, I've collaborated with people I will be interviewing, so can I "get away" with fewer than 3 interviews?  Something to ponder for my methods section
