This one day workshop provides a comprehensive overview of ATLAS.ti and an opportunity for participants to practice tasks using their own data. The focus is on gaining confidence in setting up a project efficiently, managing and organising data, exploring and conceptualising data and interrogating and visualising data.
The course combines discussion, demonstration and hands-on work, including:
- Contextual discussions – developmental, methodological and analytical principles
- Software Overview –interface, architecture, tools
- Analytic Planning – ensuring analytic strategies drive the appropriate use of software tools
- Guided Instruction – step-by-step teaching in the operation of ATLAS.ti and the use of tools for analytic tasks
- Individual Support – time for participants to discuss their projects with the Tutor
Please note: This is an ATLAS.ti 8 for Windows course. Participants using version 7 or the Mac version are welcome to attend but the main part of the course will cover the functions available for the Windows version 8.
- Principles of using ATLAS.ti
- Data preparation, import and organisation
- Data exploration and familiarisation
- Coding strategies – including appropriate uses of auto-coding
- Use of writing and visualisation tools to reflect on data and processes
- Querying and outputting
- Understand the structure of ATLAS.ti and how it can be used throughout a research project.
- Navigate around the software and operate it to undertake analysis.
- Understand the importance of analytic planning in harnessing ATLAS.ti tools powerfully.
- Set-up an ATLAS.ti project to reflect initial research design and change structures as a research project progresses.
- Identify ATLAS.ti tools that can be used to fulfil specific analytic tasks.
- Know where to access relevant resources to support continued ATLAS.ti use.
