A Guide to Qualitative Interviewing

Ping-Chun Hsiung

This Guide facilitates effective teaching and learning of Qualitative Interviewing (QI) by demonstrating good examples and instructive mistakes in data collection, examining epistemological issues on reflexivity, and incorporating analytical lenses in data analysis. The appended data set, which contains a total of 39 interview transcripts of Italian, Tamil, Caribbean and Chinese immigrants to Canada, is invaluable for freeing up class time to teaching/learning higher order skills of analysis and critical thinking.
