Preparing an interview
Introduction There is more than one way to carry out an interview so it’s not our intention to be too specific. The lessons we provide fall somewhere in between the following; Unstructured interview, Semi-structured interview, or a Structured interview. Whatever you do, being prepared gives you the best chance of collecting great material for your project or ongoing explorations.
You will be getting an insider’s perspective on your subject so spend time preparing your questions, or at the very least, have a clear idea of what you set out to achieve. The person you interview will most likely be a very busy person, so make sure you show respect and thank them for their time.
