21.02.2020, 15.00 CET: Qualitative analysis of multimodal data


This webinar will offer insights into what it means to analyze rich sets of qualitative data. This data, for example, (video)recordings of verbal or non-verbal interaction, interviews, observations, require in-depth analyses and sophisticated interpretations. The aim is to support participants to understand qualitative content analysis in connection with other types of analyses applied to rich datasets. For example, interaction analysis supports interpretations of dialogues in educational contexts; while, other data can be used to generate complementary interpretations. The aim will be addressed by:

a) Presenting and discussing foundations for thinking and working qualitatively;
b) Exploring and coding sampled interaction data; engaging in-depth with a data excerpt generated through coding;
c) Relating the sampled data to other data types and combining interpretations.

Speaker: Crina Damsa

11.03.2020, 16.00 CET: Activity theory and social network analysis


Activity theory and social network analysis are both frameworks that draw on specific theories, methods, and analysis techniques. This webinar will go through some of the common approaches of both frameworks, starting from the theories and then thinking about how these have been operationalised in research designs. The session will finish with consideration of whether the two can be combined and if so, how.

Speaker: Victoria Murphy
