ATLAS.ti is a powerful workbench for the qualitative analysis of large bodies of textual, graphical, audio and visual data (www.atlasti.com). It offers a great variety of tools for accomplishing all the tasks associated with a systematic approach to unstructured data, i.e. data that cannot be meaningfully analyzed by formal, statistical approaches.
During the session participants will develop the following skills:
- Setting up a hermeneutic unit
- Assigning primary documents
- Organizing primary documents into families
- Creating a codebook
- Coding with a codebook (coding by list)
- Coding with emergent codes (open coding)
- INVIVO coding
- Coding using the auto-coding function
- Integrating memos into the analysis process (free and attached memos)
- Producing data outputs
Pre-requisites for Participation:
- Please bring your own laptop - wireless connections will be available at the hotel.
- You must have installed ATLAS.ti Version 7 or downloaded the free ATLAS.ti version from http://www.atlasti.com/demo.html. Please do this in advance of the event.
- You must bring your own data to analyze - this is to avoid any potential breaches of ethical principles in respect of the sharing of data.
