In this course, we will focus on learning about, and so developing, skills in using particular inquiry methods connected to conversations and interviews. There are many ways of distinguishing between different methods of gathering information. Look at any book on research methods and it’ll have some subtle differences from another, so there is no single right way to approach this subject.

In this section 1 we will concentrate on asking people questions.
