This course will provide an introduction into qualitative data analysis techniques. Using examples of transcripts of focus groups, participant observation and one-to-one interviews, participants will familiarize themselves with ways of analyzing and interpreting qualitative data. Participants will also be introduced to new forms of social science data, such as audio-visual material and will discuss implications on research ethics and issues of confidentiality.
This course is designed for those with little or no experience of analysing qualitative data and would be particularly useful in conjunction with courses on undertaking qualitative research, e.g. focus groups or interviews. The course contains hands-on sessions which will enable participants to familiarise themselves with data coding techniques.
