Facilitator: Professor Louise Vincent (M.Phil. D.Phil. Oxon) is a qualitative research methodologist with a particular passion for narrative research. She works as a research capacity development consultant for a number of universities – assisting academic staff and masters and doctoral students with a range of research endeavours, including proposal writing, writing for publication, qualitative data generation methods, qualitative data analysis methods, qualitative analysis software, transcription, literature reviewing and the use of theory in qualitative data interpretation.


Target Group: Masters and Doctoral Candidates (Please note that only 20 participants can be accommodated). 


Background: Qualitative data analysis begins with coding the data. In this workshop a variety of coding possibilities are introduced including first cycle and second cycle coding methods. The workshop takes participants through a process of manually coding a qualitative data set and makes the point that knowledge and experience of manually coding data is important to engage with prior to employing electronic methods. The workshop shows the relationship between coding, categorisation, theming and memo development. The workshop introduces participants to a wide variety of possible coding strategies; the importance of memo writing as an aspect of coding; how to move from codes to categories and from categories to themes and hierarchies. The relationship between (and difference between!) coding and analysis of data is discussed. Participants are provided with interview transcripts to work with in order to experiment with different levels and types of coding.
