Tea and coffee are provided but not lunch. There are several food outlets on campus or participants may prefer to bring their own lunch (which is advisable during term-time as it is very busy).
The workshop provides a thorough introduction to the software. The focus is on gaining confidence in the early tasks of setting up projects efficiently, exploring and coding data whilst having an eye on longer term tasks.
We use sample data in order to become familiar with tools and functions, following through common tasks as a group and practicing exercises as individuals. Work is structured to provide step-by-step support for commonly used early software tools, with others demonstrated to illustrate longer-term potential. Participants have the opportunity to discuss their projects with the tutor.
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. The workshop is accompanied by fully step-by-step documentation and is led by an expert user of MAXQDA.
