  • Doing Credible Qualitative Research

    5 - 8 December 2022

    Doing Credible Qualitative Research https://dresa.org.au/events/doing-credible-qualitative-research Qualitative researchers often try to do the same as quantitative research but with smaller samples. This master-class offers lectures and data workshops covering the latest approaches to key areas of qualitative research. It outlines threats to credibility and shows how to make your research credible. * Finding a topic in your data (as opposed to quantitative research, qualitative research is often inductive; discovering unexpected things in your data) * Mixed methods. (Mixing qual and quant data. Using multiple qualitative methods. Advantages and limitations) * How many cases do you need?

  • Introduction to Computer-assisted Qualitative Data Analysis using NVivo: Online

    16 - 20 January 2023

    Introduction to Computer-assisted Qualitative Data Analysis using NVivo: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/introduction-to-computer-assisted-qualitative-data-analysis-using-nvivo-online In this 5 day course, participants will learn how to analyse qualitative data using NVivo. The course takes a holistic view of the analysis of qualitative data using computer assisted techniques. We will examine not only the mechanics of driving the NVivo software package, but also how to plan for the collection of data; preparation of data for analysis; as well as the analysis of the data. You will also be introduced to advanced analysis tools, including those for theory building, validation and presentation of findings. Participants will explore applications of the software to your own research projects. Sample data will be provided but you should bring your own data sets, if you have them, and/or copies of articles and research reports relevant to your field of study. 2023-01-16 09:30:00 UTC 2023-01-20 16:30:00 UTC ACSPRI online online ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all NVivoQualitative Researchqualitative dataData analysis
  • Introduction to Social Network Research and Analysis: Online

    16 - 20 January 2023

    Introduction to Social Network Research and Analysis: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/introduction-to-social-network-research-and-analysis-online This course is designed for social researchers using qualitative and mixed methods. The course builds from the basic, pioneering methodologies of Social Network Analysis (SNA): survey-based egonet SNA and sociometric, "whole network' SNA, and their extensions, to network sensitive ethnographies, community networks, web-based network surveys and research on social media activities. The course reviews the possibilities for working with rich network data from interview or online sources and the unique perspectives that qualitative and social research traditions bring to these tasks. The course explores ways to best manage and explore different kinds of network data in Excel, uses UCINET and NetDraw to produce network diagrams and descriptive statistics. We review other appropriate software related to participants' needs. The course serves as a transition to the associated ACSPRI courses Network Analysis in Social, Business and Political Research and Big Data Analysis for Social Scientists. Network research designs covered in this course are: * Surveys using ego-centric network (egonet) methods * Network-sensitive ethnographies * Sociometric (‘round robin’) ‘whole network’ studies and small group research * Associational/ Affiliation (‘2-mode’) networks (including ethological studies) * Cognitive mapping and socio-cognitive mapping (SCM) For each methodology we consider the best ways to code and manage raw data, the most efficient formats for importing such data into visualisation and analysis software and appropriate measures and statistics for reporting findings. We also discuss the process of relating validated findings to broader research questions (‘meta-inference’), extrapolating them to other settings and associated questions of research design. 2023-01-16 09:30:00 UTC 2023-01-20 16:00:00 UTC ACSPRI Online Online ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all social network researchSocial network analysisMixed MethodsQualitative ResearchQualitative methodssocial media data
  • Introduction to Qualitative Research: Online

    16 - 20 January 2023

    Introduction to Qualitative Research: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/introduction-to-qualitative-research-online In this course you will learn about the foundational elements of qualitative research and how they are interrelated. We will unpack the key components of qualitative research design, including the stances and theories that underpin qualitative methodologies, as well as techniques of data collection and analysis. We pay particular attention to what’s involved in ethically employing popular methods such as interviewing and observation. We also address the practical and ethical considerations of online methods, given the growing uptake of remote research during the coronavirus pandemic. The course combines short lectures covering foundational issues with practical workshops that give you a chance to practice qualitative techniques first-hand. The target audience for this course is those who would like to become more familiar with qualitative research techniques, from postgraduate university students and staff, to researchers in government and private organisations. 2023-01-16 10:00:00 UTC 2023-01-20 16:00:00 UTC ACSPRI online online ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all Qualitative ResearchQualitative methodsIntroductoryqualitative data

  • Writing up a Qualitative PhD

    27 - 30 March 2023

    Writing up a Qualitative PhD https://dresa.org.au/events/writing-up-a-qualitative-phd Whether you are doing a traditional PhD or a PhD by publication, ‘writing up’ should never be something left to the end of your research. Instead, writing should be a continuous process, learning from your supervisor, your peers and your own mistakes. I examine how this writing up can be accomplished efficiently if rarely painlessly. This masterclass is taught via lectures, small group workshops followed by feedback sessions and one-to-ones with all participants. Whether you are just starting a research degree or in your final year, this is the course for you. Among the topics covered are: * The PhD as an apprenticeship. What ‘originality’ means. * Learning from your supervisor and your peer groups * The need for consistency. Fitting your research question and methodology to your research model. * Reassurance strategies when difficulties arise: the low bar in qualitative research. * Designing a methodology that allows for rapid data gathering and early data analysis. * Practical suggestions about when to write a literature review and what it should contain. * How to avoid dull methodology chapters. Keeping a research diary. * How to write credible and interesting data chapters. What to include and what to omit. * Concluding chapters that are not summaries but which stretch the imagination. * Writing publishable journal articles 2023-03-27 19:00:00 UTC 2023-03-30 21:30:00 UTC ACSPRI online, online, Australia online online Australia ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all Qualitative Researchqualitative dataQualitative PhDWriting up a PhD
