PART 3: Fun in the Funnel – Exploring Focused Questions

(November 29)

Description: The funnel is an analogy to understand the concept of beginning with broad questions and moving to more focused questions. The concept of broad to more focused questions is a best practice for gaining accurate information in the least leading manner. This webinar will explore how to gather information about events or topics. The fun in the funnel is learning how this concept can build structure in an investigative interview, which is beneficial for the interviewee and the interviewer. Participants will learn how to apply the funnel concept and strategies for building structure in an interview.
