This online course aims to equip you with the basic knowledge and practical know-how to conduct qualitative research. After an introduction to the various forms of qualitative research (e.g., ethnographic, semantic, content analysis) and a discussion of the pros and cons, we’ll explore the practical techniques for conducting qualitative analysis. We will provide a brief insight into the most crucial steps of qualitative analysis, after which students will take on their own data using what they’ve just learned to inform their work.
