Introduction

This free seminar discusses methodological implications and practical considerations when planning for and undertaking a mixed-methods analysis using dedicated Computer Assisted Qualitative Data AnalysiS (CAQDAS) programs. Combining discussion and demonstration the session will discuss the contribution of software to analytic possibilities, types of mixed analysis enabled by software, and the practicalities of undertaking mixed-methods analytic activities using software. The seminar will be illustrated using a range of project examples using software programs including Dedoose, MAXQDA, NVivo, and QDA Miner.

 

Course leader

Christina Silver, PhD, has over 20 years of experience in using NVivo and other computer assisted qualitative data analysis programmes for many different types of projects, across academic disciplines, and in applied, government and commercial contexts. She particularly interested in the relationship between technology and methodology and improving the teaching of computer-assisted analysis. Her training focusses on harnessing NVivo powerfully, using the Five-Level QDA®method which she developed with Nicholas Woolf. The Five-Level QDA method is not a new or different way of doing analysis, but a method of learning appropriate and powerful use of qualitative software whatever the methodology. Christina is Research Fellow at the University of Surrey where she manages the CAQDAS Networking Project and the co-directs the Sociology Day Courses Programme. She is Director of QDA Services Ltd.
