January 16-18, 2013
The Social Science Data Library is pleased to present its 4th Annual Planning for Qualitative Research: Design, Analysis and Software Integration conference.
The workshops in this conference help qualitative researchers bridge the gap between theory and practice. These workshops are useful to both experienced and novice researchers, because they focus on methodological decision making throughout the life of a qualitative research project, and because they raise practical issues.
These workshops will take place over three days, from January 16th to 18th, 2013 at Temple University. This year, once again, we will partner with ResearchTalk, who will send Alison Hamilton, Ray Maietta, Paul Mihas, and Kevin Swartout to present the workshop sessions.
These workshops will take place over three days, from January 16th to 18th, 2013 at Temple University. This year, once again, we will partner with ResearchTalk. Last year’s participants consistently lauded the session presenters—Ray Maietta, Paul Mihas, Kevin Swartout—for their knowledge, responsiveness to participants, and ability to bring their vast experience to the discussion. This year they will be joined by Alison Hamilton, an anthropologist who has worked with them extensively.
One valuable component of last year's conference was that it gave researchers the opportunity to meet with researchers from many different academic disciplines. The 100+ participants came from fields ranging from business to criminal justice to education, music therapy, public health, and sociology. The networking opportunities this year will be greater and more stimulating and will help researchers make a variety of connections across institutions as well as between disciplines.
We are adding several daylong courses this year to address past participants desire for greater depth of training on several topics. Full day session include:
- Qualitative Data Collection: Interviews and Focus Groups
- Qualitative Research and Evaluation: From Design to Dissemination
- Sort & Sift, Think & Shift: A Visual Qualitative Data Analysis Method
- Qualitative Grant Writing
- ATLAS.ti:The Life of An ATLAS.ti Project-- Integrating ATLAS.ti into a
Qualitative Analysis Approach
Courses also include half-day seminars and hands-on work sessions:
- Building a Codebook and Writing Memos
- ATLAS.ti : Learning from Multimedia Data
- Rapid Turn-Around Qualitative Research: Tips for Speeding Up Qualitative Projects
- ATLAS.ti: Qualitative Questioning: Bridging and Diagramming
