  • Introduction to Qualitative Data Analysis

    22 July 2014

    This course provides an opportunity to explore different approaches to analysing qualitative data in more breadth and depth than is possible in the one-day course Introduction to Thematic Approaches to Analysing Qualitative Data course. We will mainly focus on the analysis of data derived from in-depth interviews and focus groups although the approaches discussed can also be used to analysis other types of qualitative data. The course is primarily intended for researchers with no or limited experience of analysing qualitative data. The presenters are very experienced researchers who have worked on a wide range of projects.

    Day 1 will focus on thematic analysis; a very commonly used approach in the social sciences to analysing qualitative data. We will begin with an overview of different ways of analysing qualitative data and then go on to explore the principles of ‘grounded theory’ and the constant comparison method, the process of coding data and the development of more conceptual ideas through analysis. These sessions will be interspersed with practical exercises about different stages of analysis and will provide participants with many opportunities to analyse ‘real’ data.

    Day 2 will start with a brief recap on the material ground covered in Day 1 before exploring the analysis of data generated through focus groups. We will then look at narrative approaches to analysing interview and focus group data and the extent to which these provide an alternative or complementary approach to thematic approaches. As in Day 1, there will be practical exercises throughout the day to illustrate different aspects of analysis and to help develop participants’ confidence. We will also address issues such as validity and generalisability in the context of qualitative analysis and the presentation of qualitative research findings for academic and other audiences.
