Summary Description 

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.
