Method School Courses

I have been teaching qualitative data analysis at the European Consortium for Political Research’s Summer School since 2009 and Winter School since 2013. Both the Summer and Winter School offer top-notch courses for the political and related social sciences on philosophy of science, research designs, methods of data collection and analysis, plus a vast range of software courses for qualitative and quantitative analyses. There I teach three courses that focus on building knowledge and skills in qualitative data analysis: first, at the Summer School in Budapest every July and August, I teach the short course Introduction to NVivo followed by the method course Qualitative Data Analysis: Concepts and Approaches. Then, at the Winter School in Germany in February, I repeat the short NVivo course and then teach Advanced Qualitative Data Analysis. In addition, I teach similar introductory and advanced courses at the IPSA-NUS Summer School which takes place every June and July at the National University of Singapore, and the FLAMES Summer School in Ghent, Belgium, each September.

A brief description of each course is provided below.

Introduction to NVivo
Dates: 7-11 February 2022
As part of the ECPR Winter School, I will be teaching an 5-day course on NVivo for qualitative data analysis. This course is opened to everyone and takes place online.

Find out more about this course in the ECPR website.

Advanced Qualitative Data Analysis
Dates: 7-11 February (Week 1). The course is repeated from 14-18 February 2022 (Week 2).  
I will be teaching the 5-day course Advanced Qualitative Data Analysis where participants will learn how to conduct thematic analysis, qualitative content analysis, cross-case analysis and grounded theory in NVivo. The course is designed in such way that each day, we focus on one method where we delve on its epistemology, theoretical background, coding and analysing procedures and visualisations to present results in journal articles. The last day, Friday, is reserved for method integration where we explore the possibilities and limitations to combine components (i.e. sampling, coding, analysis techniques) of the four methods in one single study. This is a sought-after course, so participants are recommended to register early.

Qualitative Data Analysis I
Dates: 4-8 July 2022
As part of the 11th IPSA-NUS Summer School, I will be teaching a one-week course in the foundations of qualitative data analysis. This course is opened to everyone and takes place at the National University of Singapore, Singapore. This is a highly sought-after course, so participants are recommended to register early.

Qualitative Data Analysis II
Dates: 11-15 July 2022
Following the course Qualitative Data Analysis I, I will be teaching the advanced course Qualitative Data Analysis II, where participants will learn how to conduct thematic analysis, qualitative content analysis, cross-case analysis and grounded theory in NVivo. The course is designed in such way that each day, we focus on one method where we delve on its epistemology, theoretical background, coding and analysing procedures and visualisations to present results in journal articles. The last day, Friday, is reserved for method integration where we explore the possibilities and limitations to combine components (i.e. sampling, coding, analysis techniques) of the four methods in one single study.

As a freelance methodologist, I train social scientists and humanitarian practitioners in qualitative analysis, decolonising research and participatory methodologies. I coach research teams, teach doctoral-level courses in method schools and I consult for humanitarian aid agencies worldwide.
