There are many different methods of collecting qualitative data, including:

Interviews

Interviews involve structured or semi-structured conversations between the researcher and participants. Interviews can be conducted one-on-one or in a group setting and can be recorded or transcribed for analysis.

Focus groups

Focus groups involve a small group of people discussing a particular topic or issue under the guidance of a moderator. Focus groups can provide rich insights into group dynamics and collective perspectives.

Observations

Observations involve watching and recording the actions and behaviours of individuals or groups in a natural setting. Observations can be participatory, meaning the researcher is actively involved in the activity being observed, or non-participatory, meaning the researcher is an observer only.

Document analysis

Document analysis involves the interpretation and analysis of written or visual documents, such as news articles, social media posts, or policy documents. Document analysis can provide valuable insights into the context and implications of written materials.
