Secondary analysis of qualitative data: using Atlas-ti to explore archived sources23-Jun-04UK Data Archive, University of Essex

This one-day workshop introduces participants to the re-use of qualitative data using Atlas-ti, a software tool for managing qualitative data. The morning session addresses best practice in data creation and documentation to enable re-use, covering guidance on transcription, anonymisation and data formats. A basic introduction to the Atlas-ti software covering coding, search and retrieve, and annotation will also be provided. In the afternoon, participants will be introduced to the workshop datasets (archived qualitative data from ESDS Qualidata) and will learn how these data can be explored and reworked. Participants will work in small groups to gain hands-on experience with re-use and re-coding of the data provided.
