Specifically, in plenary sessions participants will gain a background on qualitative methods, on data collection (e.g., sampling strategies, techniques for developing guidelines (“Leitfaden”), according to different research designs, techniques for conducting interviews, dos and don’ts, challenges, recording and transcriptions, ethics, etc.) and on data analysis (content analysis, reference to MaxQDA and other analytical methods like discourse analysis/ethnographic methods).
Lernziele By the end of the semester the participants will have acquired the skills to carry out interviews and content analysis in the field of sustainability research.
