Qualitative Data Analysis: The Basics

Please bring your laptops for this one-day workshop covering the basics of qualitative data analysis. Participants will learn building block techniques, such as theme identification and codebook development, which can be used across many analytic traditions. The course takes a hands-on approach, and uses both lectures and activities where participants analyze real data. While the emphasis is on building conceptual and methodological expertise, participants will also learn how to use text analysis software. This workshop is appropriate as an introduction for scholars new to text analysis and as a refresher for more established scholars looking to brush up on their skills. The techniques are particularly useful for researchers using mixed-methods, interdisciplinary, collaborative, or team-based approaches.  Participants will complete the course with the basic skills to initiate a text analysis. Lunch will be included in your registration.
