Purpose of the course:

This course teaches how to conduct four methods of qualitative analysis that are very popular, and widely used, in the social sciences using NVivo. You will learn to conduct qualitative content analysis, thematic analysis, cross-case analysis and grounded theory. On the last day of the course, we look at method integration, that is the possibility to integrate components of the four methods in a single study. At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

1. describe the aim and objectives of each method
2. choose the right method to answer specific research questions
3. implement each method’s coding and analysis procedures in NVivo
4. generate visualisations for each method’s outcome
5. appraise the quality of qualitative studies that used the four methods
6. assess situations where methods integration is feasible.
