Session:Big Qual Analysis: Innovation in method and pedagogy
Time:Wednesday 4th July, 11:15 - 12:45
Convenor: Professor Lynn Jamieson (University of Edinburgh)

Abstract Details

What's the most effective way to teach students and qualitative researchers how to analyse large volumes of qualitative data? Guidance about how best to work with and build skills in large scale qualitative data is scarce, as are resources to support effective teaching of methods of dealing with multiple sets of qualitative data. This session brings together two NCRM initiatives, a novel 'archaeological' method for analysing archived qualitative material across data sets (see session Wednesday 9.15-10.45) and a pedagogy project that uses multiple methods to develop cutting-edge knowledge about the teaching and learning of advanced research methods (see session Tuesday 10.00-12.30). Through small group activities/discussion you will be invited to engage with and evaluate the training resources that we are developing in order to teach rigorous secondary analytic practice across multiple data sets. The session is especially suited to those engaged in methods training.
