The Hungarian participants recently have had several meetings already on this project topic. Today they met with a sociologist who held the first of two workshops on how to create questionnaires and carry out interviews.
Today members worked on questionnaire types. Great detail was paid to what kinds of questions can be asked to achieve the results needed for this project. In addition, tricks of the trade ranging from making audio recordings to taking hand notes, from paying attention to going to the interview alone were covered.
It was an in depth, crash course on the fortes of the profession. All participants made significant advances in their technique due to the hands-on nature of the workshop. During the next segment they will focus on specific questions to be asked and fine tune their technique as well.
