A hands-on tutorial using qualitative data analysis (QDA) software. This day-long workshop is free and open to UW graduate students, faculty and researchers. The workshop is structured to introduce participants to QDA software in the framework of a mock research project and to demonstrate how such software can be used to conduct a literature review and preliminary qualitative data analysis. The schedule will include a lunch break.
QUAL Workshop: Building a Research Question
Introduction to QDA software
The QUAL Workshop tutorial begins with an introduction to qualitative data analysis (QDA) software and a hands-on exercise, starting a research project in ATLAS.ti with qualitative data provided by the instructor.
Collecting and analyzing theories, claims, and hypotheses
Using the example project with data provided by the Instructor, workshop participants learn how QDA software could be used to code and annotate source documents for a literature review.
Collecting and analyzing evidence
Participants practice adding “preliminary evidence” data to the project – including sample interviews, newspaper articles, website content, video and audio materials.
Pulling together your research question
Finally, participants see how QDA software can help reveal connections between their literature readings and preliminary evidence data. The ultimate goal of the exercise is to arrive at a research question, situated in the literature and grounded in evidence.
