Abstract Title: Qualitative Research Methods
Abstract: This workshop for those who want to learn more about carrying out a qualitative research study. We will briefly review the Generic Inductive Analysis method and then participants will analyze two or three different types of qualitative data. Participants will code data, make claims, and support these claims with evidence from the data. We will also discuss benefits and limitations of qualitative research. Finally, we will review two different software packages for transcribing and analyzing data and we will review the article on qualitative research in the new volume Getting Started in PER. Participants will leave ready to launch into their own qualitative research study.
