Dynasty Court Hotel, Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines
June 16-19, 2019

The International Association of Scholarly Publishers, Editors and Reviewers (IASPER) with the SEC Registration No. CN201433407 is once again inviting you to participate in the Training-Workshop on Conducting Field Interview Surveys and Focus Group Discussions and their Analysis that will be staged on June 16-19, 2019 at Dynasty Court Hotel, Cagayan deo Oro City, Philippines.


What respondents tell a researcher are not yet data. What is recorded from what the respondents have told the researcher are data. Field interviews are not easy to do because a researcher needs to have perspicacity in designing questions, in framing questions that elicit good answers, and in asking ethically the respondents. With the tape recorder or video recorder at hand, the researcher proceeds to produce transcripts as basis for extracting concepts, formulating themes and generating theories. Advanced interviewing skills are needed since the researcher is the actual instrument of data collection. When themes are formulated, the researcher dialogues them with ideas from published literature and views of experts. The training is a walking-through of field interviews and data analysis.

The objectives of the training are to:

  1. Design and plan survey questions and focus group discussions;
  2. Demonstrate skills in facilitating FGD Session; and
  3. Evaluate and assess sample interviews and their analysis.
