    Have you ever felt daunted by a volume of data? Then help is at hand: this course is designed to help participants learn how to analyse their qualitative material. It provides a map of different approaches but then focuses on Thematic Analysis, a cross-sectional, substantive (rather than structural) method. Talks and practical workshops will take participants through the process of data management and descriptive analysis. Some experience of qualitative research, or attendance on other qualitative courses, is vital. The day is appropriate for those whose data are in the form of semi-structured or in-depth interviews, focus groups, field notes or other documents, but is not geared towards the analysis of open-ended responses to questionnaire items.
