Louise Corti

This workshop will present an overview of the uses and range of computer-assisted qualitative data analysis software (CAQDAS) packages. Through hands-on sessions and exercises focusing on the software ATLAS.ti, participants will be introduced to the particular applications and key functions of the software. Archived qualitative data from ESDS Qualidata will be used as the data sources. The session is intended to be practical and intensive and aims to get participants started with the software by familiarizing them with the following:

  • Initial usage tools
  • Data preparation considerations
  • Importing data into software
  • "Coding" of data (attaching thematic labels to segments of data)
  • Search and retrieval of coded data
  • Use of annotation and memoing tools
  • Exporting data

Intended Audience: Individuals interested in learning about qualitative data analysis software. The workshop assumes little or no experience with Atlas-ti or other qualitative software packages.
