Interviewing Influential Individuals in Educational Studies
Concepts and techniques for conducting interviews of influential people are often neglected in educational research in Taiwan. However, collecting data via interviewing influential individuals has become an important and frequently used method in the fields of sociology of education, educational policy, politics of education, and educational administration. Most of the books on interview studies focus on general principles and strategies for conducting interviews and analyzing interview data which are inadequate for conducting interviews of influential people. In order to help researchers do better jobs in addressing their research questions through interviews with influential individuals, I wrote up this paper based on literature review as well as my own experiences in conducting such interviews in several projects. The paper covers the following topics: the importance of interviewing influential people, the identification of influential people to be interviewed, challenges and solutions in collecting data from influential people, preparation needed for conducting successful elite student interviews, and guidelines for analyzing the interview data.
