I chose to make an infographic that has helpful tips to conducting research interviews. According to our text, “Interviewing is necessary when we cannot observe behavior, feelings, or how people interpret the world around them” (Merriam & Tisdell, 2016). I was able to find a lot of helpful tips of some things that I hadn’t thought of in terms to conducting interviews. I also found tips of things that I had used in the past and found really helpful.
