Learn how to use MAXQDA as the experts do.
This means going beyond learning how to simply operate the software, to harnessing it in the service of your analytic strategies.
The Five-Level QDA method ensures that your use of MAXQDA is driven by the objectives of your research project and enables you to develop the expertise you need to produce high quality analysis, whatever your methodology.
This 2 day workshop builds on the framework outlined by the Five-Level QDA method by providing:
Who should attend
Anyone using, or intending to use, MAXQDA for a research project, and any prospective instructors of the Five-Level QDA method for teaching MAXQDA.
The focus is on learning to use MAXQDA in the context of your own research project. You should therefore have a qualitative or mixed methods research project in progress, or be just beginning a project with data available. Data may include literature files, primary qualitative data (e.g. interview or focus-group transcripts, survey data with open-ended responses, observational field notes, images, video files etc.) and/or background or secondary qualitative data (e.g. documents and reports, archival material etc.)
Having a project in progress includes familiarity with your qualitative methodology, your research design, and your planned analytic strategies, in other words – what you plan to do with your data. To note, having only data but no planned analytic strategies will make it difficult to fully benefit from this workshop and other training we provide may be more useful for you. If you are in doubt, please get in touch with us to discuss your needs more specifically.
The workshop is based on the principles of the Five-Level QDAmethod and reading Part 1 of our book Qualitative Analysis using MAXQDA : The Five-Level QDA method before the workshop will ensure you get the most from your two days. All participants are will receive a 20% discount on the price of the book when registering for the workshop.
Please note, this is a 'bring your own laptop' workshop. You can work with either MAXQDA for Windows or Mac - ensuring the latest updates are installed. If you do not have a license, you can download the free, 14 day trial version for use during the workshop, from the MAXQDA website.
