Facing the Challenges

Interviewing for Education and Social Science Research: The Gateway Approach,
Carolyn Lunsford Mears, Palgrave/Macmillan, 2009, page 22

Mears highlights some challenges faced by those doing interview-based research:

It demands time and energy and can require months to complete. Interview-based investigations often raise concerns about scientific rigour and the relative usefulness of findings.

She adds - firmly, in my opinion:

These challenges need to be faced squarely so that there will be fewer surpries once you have started your study.

These challenges are faced too by those using Grounded Theory Method and Interpretive Phenomenological Analysis, so I'd better get used to them!
