Course Description

Quirkos supports the management and analysis of textual data and is designed to be easy to learn, visual and affordable. It is available for Windows, Mac and Linux.

 

This one day workshop provides a comprehensive overview of Quirkos and an opportunity for participants to practice tasks using their own data. The focus is on gaining confidence in setting up a project efficiently, managing and organising data, exploring and conceptualising data and interrogating and visualising data.

 

The course combines discussion, demonstration and hands-on work, including:

  • Contextual discussions – developmental, methodological and analytical principles
  • Software Overview –interface, architecture, tools
  • Analytic Planning – ensuring analytic strategies drive the appropriate use of software tools
  • Guided Instruction – step-by-step teaching in the operation of Quirkos and the use of tools for analytic tasks
  • Individual Support – time for participants to discuss their projects with the Tutors

 

Participants are encouraged to bring their own research materials to work with (this could include transcribed primary data, literature files, reports pertinent to the project, etc.), although sample materials can also be provided.

 

Please note: This is a Bring Your Own Laptop workshop – you will need to have installed the latest version of Quirkos on your laptop before arriving at the workshop – the software can be downloaded from https://www.quirkos.com/index.html
