Event description

Description

Learn how to use ATLAS.ti as the experts do.

This means going beyond learning how to simply operate the software, to harnessing it in the service of your analytic strategies.

The Five-Level QDA method ensures that your use of ATLAS.ti is driven by the objectives of your research project and enables you to develop the expertise you need to produce high quality analysis, whatever your methodology.

This 2 day workshop builds on the framework outlined by the Five-Level QDA method by providing:

  • an overview of the sorts of analytic activities that ATLAS.ti can be used for
  • a comprehensive understanding of ATLAS.ti’s components and the ways they can be used to fulfil your analytic tasks
  • a detailed understanding of the principles of the Five-Level QDA method
  • guided practice in analytic planning in your own research project
  • guided practice in the “translation” of analytic tasks into ATLAS.ti tools in your own research project, using Five-Level QDA worksheets
  • a range of case examples that illustrate different ways ATLAS.ti can be harnessed
  • an opportunity to discuss your project with other participants and the workshop tutors
  • access to our companion website that hosts dozens of instructional videos to consolidate your use of the Five-Level QDA method with ATLAS.ti


Who should attend

Anyone using, or intending to use, ATLAS.ti for a research project, and any prospective instructors of the Five-Level QDA method for teaching ATLAS.ti.

The focus is on learning to use ATLAS.ti in the context of your own research project. You should therefore have a qualitative or mixed methods research project in progress, or be just beginning a project with data available. Data may include literature files, primary qualitative data (e.g. interview or focus-group transcripts, survey data with open-ended responses, observational field notes, images, video files etc.) and/or background or secondary qualitative data (e.g. documents and reports, archival material etc.)

Having a project in progress includes familiarity with your qualitative methodology, your research design, and your planned analytic strategies, in other words – what you plan to do with your data. To note, having only data but no planned analytic strategies will make it difficult to fully benefit from this workshop and other training we provide may be more useful for you. If you are in doubt, please get in touch with us to discuss your needs more specifically.


The workshop is based on the principles of the Five-Level QDA method and reading Part 1 of our book Qualitative Analysis using ATLAS.ti : The Five-Level QDA method before the workshop will ensure you get the most from your two days. All participants are will receive a 20% discount on the price of the book when registering for the workshop.

Please note, this is a 'bring your own laptop' workshop. You can work with either ATLAS.ti for Windows or ATLAS.ti for Mac - ensuring the latest updates are installed. If you do not have a license, you can download the free trial version for use during the workshop, from the ATLAS.ti website.

If you have not already been using ATLAS.ti, free webinars in basic operating skills are available on the ATLAS.ti website. Familiarity with the software will give you a flying start in the workshop.

Christina has been using and teaching CAQDAS packages since 1997. She has conducted many different research projects, big and small, with and without the use of qualitative software – including her own studies and many other academic and applied research projects.

Christina has designed and carried out analysis for many independent organisations, teaching under- and post-graduate qualitative methods courses in UK and European universities and currently contributes to doctoral programmes at several institutions. Christina is the Director of the UK arm of QDAS (Qualitative Data Analysis Services Ltd.) and is the manager of the CAQDAS Networking Project.

Christina is co-author of Using Software in Qualitative Research: A Step-by-Step Guide with Ann Lewins and The Five-Level QDA® method with Nicholas Woolf

Dr Sarah Bulloch

Sarah has worked on research projects with qualitative materials, supported by software, including the analysis of video during post-doctorate research. As co-investigator on an Economic and Social Research Council research grant at the University of Southampton, UK, Sarah explored both qualitative writings from the Mass Observation Archive and British Household Panel Survey data, to undertake longitudinal mixed methods analysis.

Sarah has knowledge and experience of research in different contexts, having worked in the academic, voluntary, government and private sectors. She undertook two postdoctoral research fellowships, worked on contracts with government and small businesses, and in policy and practice-based research as Research Manager for the disability charity Scope. She currently teaches introductory and advanced workshops in a range of CAQDAS packages, as well as teaching quantitative analysis using SPSS. Sarah teaches in both English and German.
