9:00 AM - 4:00 PM Qualitative Analysis

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.

Prerequisites:
Basic knowledge of qualitative methods. This workshop is appropriate for academics and professionals alike.

Prepare:
Prior thinking about the type of data that may be collected (if participants have a project in mind) would be helpful.

If possible, read Braun, V. & Clarke, V. (2006). Using thematic analysis in psychology. Qualitative Research in Psychology, 3, 77 – 101.

Instructor:
Katie Cook

  • 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM Questionnaire Design, Sampling & Recruitment

    Many people underestimate the art and science that goes into developing and designing a good survey. This 2-day workshop will help you develop surveys that are both valid (truly answer your research questions) and reliable (respondents understand what you are asking).

    The instructor - the Vice President of Ipsos Public Affairs in Canada - will draw on several decades of research on survey design and response process as well as his own experience as a researcher, teacher and consultant in survey design. It is the perfect synthesis between theoretical and practical, real-world approaches.

    Among other topics, conceptualization, operationalization, the survey development process, survey structure and format, question wording, and online surveys will be discussed. The workshop is conducted in an interactive way and participants will be able to apply their knowledge through practice exercises.

    Prerequisites:
    It is easy to follow with no prior knowledge needed.
