Summary Description 

Transana supports the management and analysis of audiovisual and textual data.

 

This one day workshop provides a comprehensive overview of Transana and an opportunity for

participants to practice tasks using sample 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 Transana and the use of tools for

analytic tasks

· Individual Support – time for participants to discuss their projects with the Tutor

Learning Outcomes

· Understand the structure of Transana 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 Transana tools powerfully.

· Set-up a Transana project to reflect initial research design and change structures as a research

project progresses.

· Identify Transana tools that can be used to fulfil specific analytic tasks.

· Know where to access relevant resources to support continued Transana use.
