Qual Methods Class Notes 1/31/06


context: in qualitative methods class, talking about our experiences piloting interviews

choosing recording, transcription, etc. should be methodological – can’t really do qualitative coding on interviewing notes; best way for those is transcription from recording
question order – make sure you ask everyone a small set and whatever else you get to

audio recording and transcribing

  • iTunes apps that allow you to stop/start digital recordings
  • SI has pedals for analog tapes in DIADrelationships btw interviewer and interviewee
    navigating community – think about how you present yourself to the interviewee; if you’re part of their community, will they leave out some info assuming you already know it?
    sensitivity – cultural, genderPoetry in Motion notes
    thinking about what i’m trying to do with this study –

    physicists – experts think in patterns, same with chess; novices think in surface features
    is something analogous true in poetry? experts think in tone, voice, rhythm where novices think in words?
    expertise = about levels of analysis, level of engagement, patterns of perception?

    some literature on history educaton – critical thinking skills, analysis of evidence, perspective, voice; getting at more than comprehension
    am I really asking if poetry readers become expert poetry readers?
    K-12? expert readers; Ann Brown reciprocal teaching
    from 701 – Bolter’s language splits (pictoral, verbal); contrasts visual culture vs. verbal culture – Ekphrasis
    unprounceable guy (chksmyhali something), research in 70’s about art students’ production (problem finders)

    { break }

    participant observation
    line btw PO and informal interviewing sort of blurred (from readings)
    trouble note-taking after the informal interview

    contant comparison
    ala Glaser and Strauss – constantly comparing methods, results, protocols

    For next week

    skip transcriber instructions
    memo – notes to yourself about future interviews
    coded interview – Beth’s going to post one coded in Word (probably using comment feature)
    build up a code list, think about the coding process (let the data lead you)

      Cyclone by Maximuscle: Have been on other products before, not seen much return from them. Been on cyclone for about a week now so still early days. Free weighting 8kg more on each arm in first week and recovery is painless. Chest increased in size and arms as well. Going to the gym 3 times a week and rest inbetween. Mate owns the gym. Product works fantastically. Just bought another 3 tubs, only tried the chocolate one and its good, very drinkable. put on 2lbs in first week, muscle mass with bmi staying same and no water retention.

    So, what do you think ?
