Seminar 9.30am - 1pm

Choosing the appropriate analysis software package is an important part of planning any research project. There are a range of options available, but it is not always easy to visualise exactly what a package offers when exploring it for the first time yourself. Equally when asking someone else for their opinion, it is not always easy to know what questions you should be asking. Most of the software packages, which help the researcher to manage mixed methods projects, are excellent products in one way or several!

This seminar will help you make an informed choice between products.

The course covers:

  • Principles of CAQDAS packages
  • Ways in which CAQDAS packages support qualitative
  • Comparisons between features

 The target audience for this seminar is Postgraduate students, academic/ government researchers, all disciplines
