CAQDAS Networking Project (CNP) online courses

The CAQDAS Networking Project (CNP) is offering training courses at a reduced rate for those interested in developing their skills in the use of digital tools for qualitative and mixed-methods analysis.

The CNP is now providing training and networking activities online to continue supporting students, academics and applied researchers in the use of CAQDAS packages. There are several one-day and two-day training events coming up, and in recognition of pressures on training budgets in the current climate, we have reduced our fees for training – offering a 40 per cent discount for registered students (part-time and full-time), and a 20 per cent discount for all academic, voluntary sector, government and commercial participants.

On the courses, you will learn:

  • The principles and logic of your chosen CAQDAS package and a comprehensive understanding of all its components
  • How to efficiently prepare, incorporate and organize data
  • How to explore and familiarise with qualitative materials
  • How to develop efficient and flexible coding approaches (including appropriate uses of auto-coding and dictionary building, where available)
  • How to use writing and visualisation tools to reflect on data and analytic processes
  • How to use software tools to interrogate patterns and relationships and generate meaningful output to communicate findings.

The CAQDAS Networking Project (CNP) was founded by the Department of Sociology, by Prof Nigel Fielding and Prof Raymond Lee in 1994. The project provides impartial information, advice, training and ongoing support about the use and methodological implications of the range of CAQDAS packages available.

Discover the free webinar series hosted by the CNP - all webinars are free and are designed to build capacity and foster discussion amongst the global community of qualitative and mixed-methods researchers. Recordings of webinars are available on YouTube.
