QUAL Workshops: Building a Research Question

  • Introduction to QDA software
    • The QUAL Workshop tutorial begins with an introduction to qualitative data analysis (QDA) software and a hands-on exercise, starting a research project in ATLAS.ti with qualitative data provided by the instructor.
  • Collecting and analyzing theories, claims, and hypotheses
    • Using the example project with data provided by the Instructor, workshop participants learn how QDA software could be used to code and annotate source documents for a literature review.
  • Collecting and analyzing evidence
    • Participants practice adding “preliminary evidence” data to the project – including sample interviews, newspaper articles, website content, video and audio materials.
  • Pulling together your research question
    • Finally, participants see how QDA software can help reveal connections between their literature readings and preliminary evidence data. The ultimate goal of the exercise is to arrive at a research question, situated in the literature and grounded in evidence.

Participants at the Spring 2016 workshop worked with sample qualitative data to learn hands-on how a research project could be conducted in ATLAS.ti from literature review through data analysis. The QUAL Workshops are held at CSSCR's computer labs in Savery Hall.
