FASS513 Approaches to Qualitative Analysis
This module addresses issues associated with the analysis of qualitative research materials. It is designed specifically for research students who:
The aim is to combine a) examination of the theoretical underpinnings of qualitative research; b) exposure to a range of approaches to qualitative analysis; and c) advice on practical management of research materials (e.g. iterative refinement of research design and analysis, how to go about analysing observational and interview materials, how to integrate heterogeneous forms of data).
This module relies on students:
Please contact the convenor if you know that you will be missing one or more of the classes.
Because of the workshop based / interactive format, places are limited to 15. Places will be allocated in the following order of priority: FASS students; students who need to take the module this year; order of date of receipt of application. Those who are unsuccessful in getting on the course this year will, however, be given priority for 2013-14. Unsuccessful applicants will be placed on a waiting list. As places on the module are limited, please inform the RTP Administrator as soon as possible if you no longer wish to take it, so that your place can be offered to another student.
