Abstract

This paper outlines some important issues discovered about undertaking qualitative interviews. A description of a study that involved interviewing the authors' students is followed by discussion of aspects of the interviewing process that became apparent during analysis of those interviews. Problems that were encountered with retrospective interviews, power differentials, question sequencing, some interview techniques, and a prior knowledge of the students are illuminated to assist other qualitative interviewers to be aware of these potential areas of difficulty
