Intro to Qualitative Data Analysis Using ATLAS.ti & CSSCR's new Terminal Server, TitusDescription:
This course will consist of two parts. The first hour will be an intro to qualitative data analysis (QDA) using ATLAS.ti. This session is open to all UW students, faculty and staff. Attendees will review criteria to consider when choosing a QDA software program and learn the features and terminology used in ATLAS.ti, a QDA package broadly used in academia. A hands-on workshop will take up most of Part I - we will create a new project in ATLAS.ti with qualitative data provided by the instructor and featuring interviews, newspaper articles, policy documents, images, and a video. We will practice coding, organizing the data into families, and try several of the basic analysis functions such as networks (visualizing data and codes), various reports and outputs.
Part II is intended for faculty and researchers in the Social Sciences who are interested in accessing ATLAS.ti (and other data analysis software such as Stata) via CSSCR's new free service - the remote terminal server Titus. We will practice logging into Titus and CSSCR's Computer Support Specialist will be available to answer technical questions. Those interested in this service should register specifically for Part II with their UW Net ID/UW email address. We will practice logging into Titus on a PC; if you have a MacBook that you prefer to log in from, feel free to bring it.
