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 School and Winter School offer top-notch courses for the political and related social sciences that cover the philosophy of science, research designs, methods of data collection and analysis and a vast range of software courses for qualitative and quantitative analyses. I teach four courses that focus on building knowledge and skills in qualitative data analysis: an NVivo refresher course (Introduction to NVivo) followed by the introductory course on qualitative data analysis (Qualitative Data Analysis: Concepts and Approaches) at the Summer School in Budapest, and an NVivo preparatory course (Introduction to NVivo) followed by the course Advanced Qualitative Data Analysis at the Winter School in Bamberg, Germany. In addition, I am teaching similar introductory and advanced qualitative analysis courses at the IPSA-NUS Summer School, which takes place at the National University of Singapore in June and July each year.

A brief description of each course is provided below.
