Research Design and Qualitative Methods 

Research Design and Qualitative Methods

Objectives:
– to develop a research topic that is related (1) to living in a bi-lingual city, or
(2) to your favourite street or place in Montréal, or
(3) to travel experiences in Québec, or
(4) to attitudes about vegetarianism, or
(5) to insights when watching the film “HOME” by Yann Arthus-Bertrand (freely available
online at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghkQoJoipbM), or
(6) to experiences with food in Montréal, or
(7) to traffic in Montréal.
– to design an interview guide for a semi-structured qualitative interview
– to conduct your research within your group of 3 students (2 interviews each)
– to transcribe, analyze and discuss your results.
The interviews in this assignment are to be done in groups of three students. (Groups of 4
are also possible; here as well it would be 2 interviews each.)
However, the development of a research topic, the design of the interview guide, and the
transcription, analysis and discussion of the results are to be done individually.
Please prepare and hand in your assignments individually.
Every student is supposed to watch the film “HOME” by Yann Arthus-Bertrand so she/he can be
interviewed about her/his insights when watching the film. (It’s highly recommended to take
some notes while watching it that you then can use when you are being interviewed.)
Each student is supposed to transcribe the two interviews she/he has conducted. The
transcripts need to be handed in (limited length, see below). The type of interview is: semistructured interview.
Assign letters A, B, C to the three members of your group: A interviews B and C about topic X,
B interviews C and A about topic Y, C interviews A and B about topic Z.
Remember to always write full sentences (following good academic standards) (but this does not
apply to the transcripts because respondents may not always use complete sentences when they speak).
