Communication Research
semi-strucured interview
3rd February 2017
Why using interviews?
interviewing may be appropriate where depth of meaning is important and the research is primarily focused in gaining insight and understanding.
• It provides the opportunity to generate rich data;
• Language use by participants was considered essential in gaining insight into their
perceptions and values;
• Contextual and relational aspects were seen as significant to understanding others’
• Data generated can be analysed in different ways.

The “interview” is a managed verbal exchange
Interview and its requirements
Its effectiveness heavily depends on the communication skills of the interviewer:

- clearly structure questions;

- pause, probe or prompt appropriately (Ritchie & Lewis, p.141);

- encourage and let the interviewee to talk freely, ability to establish rapport
How to structure questions
1) General topics related to the research design (four of five topics are enough)
2) For each topic writing three/four questions
3) Which questions? It obviously depends on your research design. My suggestion is asking
practical stuff

Exempla (research on TV series consumption habits)

Which setting (and other practical stuff)
