Meeting Description:

Dr Steve Mann from the University of Warwick will lead an interactive day on the use of interviews in EFL research. During the course of the day, you will have the opportunity to raise and discuss your issues relating to the use of interviews in your data collection. Steve will assist participants in the development of an interview approach and set of questions, which we will then use for a live interview with Graham Hall about his experience of the EFL research field.

The day aims to give participants a stronger understanding of the use of interviews in the EFL context and hands-on experience of different interview approaches, which a researcher might take. It will also demonstrate the value of reflective practice and reflexivity in the analysis and representation of data.
