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. â€œIt makes you aware of what you havenâ€™t seen before, and it enables you to pull meaningful information out of buzzing confusionâ€ (p. 234).
For this Discussion, you will reflect on your interview experience from last week. Perhaps you have noticed how well (or how poorly) you paid attention; or that something the interviewee said astonished you; or how quickly (or slowly) the time went by.
