Using Interviews and Questionnaires in Research

In this session we will discuss various types of interviews and questionnaires that are commonly used in research, with illustrative examples often taken from our own research. We will consider the strengths and limitations of each type of data collection method.  We will focus particularly on issues relating to bias, transparency and transferability, considering how to account for these when designing, conducting, analysing and presenting research.

This session is suitable for those who are interested in qualitative and/or quantitative research. Professor Bradley is primarily a qualitative researcher and Professor Jones is primarily a quantitative researcher so you will be able to hear from both perspectives.
