Overview

This workshop consists of a mixture of demonstrations and guided practice, focusing on the practical knowledge required for using MAXQDA for the analysis of qualitative data. The workshop covers the contents of the workshops “Analysing Qualitative Data with MAXQDA Starter I” and Analysing Qualitative Data with MAXQDA Starter II”.

Content

  • Creating a MAXQDA project and importing documents
  • Creating codes and coding text segments
  • Retrieving coded segments
  • Creating and managing memos
  • Searching for text
  • Autocoding search results
  • Creating variables for documents
  • Activating documents by variables and colors

Goals

After completing this workshop, you will be able to prepare and import documents to be analyzed in MAXQDA, and they will be familiar with the basic functions necessary for analyzing qualitative data, from creating and managing a code system to coding documents to retrieving coded segments.

You will learn to use memos to hold and organise ideas and thoughts. After the workshop you will be able to use standardised background information (like age, health status etc.) to filter and compare your data. You know how to conduct simple and complex lexical searches and automatically code search results.

For whom

For all those, who have not yet worked with MAXQDA and want a hands-on, praxis-oriented introduction to computer-supported analysis of qualitative data.

Requirements

No special requirements.
