Introduction to Qualitative Analysis
Qualitative data analysis (QDA) turns qualitative information into findings. It is the process through which we identify, explain, interpret and make sense of qualitative data. This course offers an overview of concepts, approaches, and strategies in QDA, with a focus on analysing data from interviews. It provides a comprehensive introduction to thematic analysis, a method that is broadly applicable. By the end of this course, you 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 qualitative data. This is a hands-on course; you will have opportunity to practice your new knowledge and skill by working with tutorial data. This workshop is appropriate for academics and professionals alike.
