Qualitative Data Analysis Workshops -- Fall 2020

Starting with QDA 
There are many tools and strategies for qualitative data analysis, but which approach you take depends on your research question and methodology. In this interactive workshop, we'll talk though the specifics of your research project to make a plan for qualitative data analysis that helps you meet your goals. By the end of the workshop, we expect you'll be able to: (1) analyze your research project to articulate your goals for your qualitative data analysis (2) use your goals and methodological approach to develop a data analysis plan (3) decide what qualitative data analysis (including CAQDAS software) are needed for your research plan.

Taguette
Many full-featured (and expensive!) qualitative data analysis (QDA) software programs are overkill for exploratory analysis or when you're on a deadline. In this workshop, we'll walk through setting up a project in the open source QDA software Taguette. By the end of the workshop, we expect you'll be able to: (1) Install Taguette or access the web-based version of the program (2) Import textual qualitative data into Taguette (3) Code your data using Taguette (4) Export your coded data and codebook for further analysis.

By the end of the workshop, we expect you'll be able to (1) Import your qualitative data into NVivo (2) Describe the coding tools in NVivo and decide how to apply the tools to your project (3) Use NVivo's query tools to explore your data and develop an interpretation of your analyzed data.
