MAXQDA, developed by Verbi Software, is a CAQDAS package suited to the management and analysis of qualitative data i.e. text and multimedia data/information. This one day workshop provides a thorough overview to the software and prepares participants for setting-up projects and getting started with using the software efficiently.
In the one day context the overall emphasis is on the management of text although a short demonstration concerning basic handling of different multimedia types can be included if required by participants. The workshop focuses on ways to organise both the data and the project itself. We code the data, create memo's which centralise thematic work and writing, create maps which allow us to explore and visually express themes, our ideas about them and their connections with other issues. We aim to encourage the effective use of some of the most important tools available in the software. Overview demonstrations at the beginning and towards the end of the day provide a longer term sense of direction. The remainder of the workshop is in fully supported hands-on format. The same sample data is used by everyone during the workshop to enable the group to focus on the same tasks at the same time.
The course will suit those who are complete beginners and those who have looked at the software and tried to use it in a limited extent. However you should have some idea about what your approach to qualitative data analysis will be. The course does not teach you 'how to do' qualitative data analysis per se.
This is a CAQDAS Networking Project event.
