Integrating memos and codes in qualitative analysis (online)

This 2.5 hour course will be offered via Zoom. Attendance is required as the course will not be recorded.

Course Summary:

This course focuses on what it means to develop codes and how to integrate memo writing into the larger process of coding and analysis. Coding and memo writing function as simultaneous and fluid tasks that occur during actively reviewing interviews, focus groups, and multi-media data. We will discuss the tension between deductive and inductive codes and how codes can emerge and shift unexpectedly during analysis. We will also cover how to identify code connections, possible hierarchies, and higher-level themes.
