Transana is a bespoke video transcription and analysis tool. The one day workshop provides the opportunity to gain a thorough overview to  Transana and practice tasks using sample data. The focus is on gaining confidence in the early tasks of setting up projects efficiently, transcribing, exploring and coding data whilst having an eye on longer term tasks.

The course will suit those who are complete beginners and those who have looked at the software and tried to use it to a limited extent.  However you should have some idea about what your approach to analyzing video data will be. The course does not teach you ‘how to do’ qualitative data analysis per se

During the one-day workshop format we spend some time familiarizing with Transana as a group using sample data. This enables the group to focus on the same tasks at the same time and discuss their implications. We will experiment with transcribing, creating clips, coding interesting or significant data segments and creating notes which centralize thematic work and writing. We will think about the organization of the data and the project itself, developing and visualizing connections between documents, themes, issues, and theoretical ideas. We will generate output files and reports which allow us to integrate work into other applications.

OBJECTIVES:  We aim to encourage the effective use of some of the many tools available in Transana, whilst staying in control of work.   Time constraints mean that we focus on those parts of the software which provide fundamental and flexible ways to manage thinking about qualitative data. Overview demonstrations provide a longer term sense of direction.  

 

Tasks covered:

Creating and saving databases

Working with video data

Transcribing tools and options

The creation of clips and their organization into collections

Coding data using keywords

Visualizing data

Note taking
