Qualitative data analysis (QDA) turns qualitative information (i.e. words, artistic expressions) into research findings. It is the process through which we identify, explain, interpret, and make sense of stories, text and images.
This workshop offers an overview of concepts, approaches and strategies in QDA with a focus on interview data. It provides a comprehensive introduction to thematic analysis, a method that is broadly applicable and widely used.
By the end of this day, you will have a better understanding of how to plan for QDA, be familiar with basic coding techniques, know how to ensure your findings are trustworthy, and be ready to start analysing.
This is a hands-on workshop; you will have opportunity to practice your new knowledge and skill by working with sample data provided online.
Basic knowledge of qualitative methods. This workshop is appropriate for academics and professionals alike.
Prior thinking about the type of data that may be collected (if participants have a project in mind) would be helpful.
