Thematic analysis is a relatively straightforward approach that researchers can use when analysing qualitative data. It involves a process of coding data by theme, so that the meanings conveyed by participants can be summed up and presented in a useful and rigorous way.
This short training course will introduce participants to the basics of the process of thematic analysis via a short presentation. Participants will then be given the opportunity for some ‘hands on’ experience of thematic analysis, at different stages of the analysis and provided with examples showing how findings may be presented.
This course is designed to be useful to staff conducting research, audit or evaluation projects that will collect qualitative data, particularly those using interviews or focus groups. No prior experience will be assumed and it is not essential to have your own project underway at the point you attend.
