Your research data mainly contains of qualitative or mixed-method data and you want to learn more about how to analyze these data sources?
ATLAS.ti is a computer program that supports the qualitative analysis of large bodies of textual, graphical, audio and video data. It offers a variety of tools for accomplishing the tasks associated with any systematic approach to "soft" data, e.g., material which cannot be analysed by formal, statistical approaches in meaningful ways.
The classical case is content analysis of interview data. However, the spectrum of methodological approaches that can be applied when using the software is much larger. Inductive as well as deductive ways of working are supported and depending on the type of data and chosen methodological approach, different functionalities become more relevant. The workshop will cover both the technical aspects of software use, as well as the methodological aspects of various approaches. As not all approaches can be covered in a two day course, a choice was made to discuss Grounded Theory as one popular example of an interpretive approach, and mixed-methods as an example from the other, more deductive end of the spectrum.
