Learning outcomes

  1. Understand the way that research questions cannot be asked directly but must be answered as the result of indirect questions.
  2. Understand how to construct interview schedules.
  3. Become aware of other ways of eliciting responses in interview settings (e.g. drawing and discussing scales).


Part 3 looks at how Sally collected the data. This was mainly semi-structured interviews and she looks at both the student interview and the staff interview schedules. She also got respondents to do drawings or mind-maps at the start of sessions and finished by getting them to discuss an entrepreneurship scale.
