Stand the change to win a prize by attending the Quantitative and Qualitative Webinar!
A two-hour webinar will be presented by Hennie Gerber and Monique van der Walt on the 29th of April at 10:00 am. This webinar will be for quantitative and qualitative researchers. Mixed methods will be also be touched upon.
The webinar will start at 10:00 with the Quantitative part presented by Hennie Gerber.
“To consult the statistician after an experiment is finished, is often merely to ask him to conduct a post mortem examination. He can perhaps say what the experiment died of.” This quote is from the famous Statistician R.A. Fisher. It is essential to get the research design correct before sending out a questionnaire.
Therefore the critical steps in the quantitative research process will be briefly considered to ensure that the research hypotheses, research approach, research design, questionnaire and sampling is done correctly to be able to do the analyses.
The validation of a questionnaire will be concentrated on, as well as the use of a research consistency matrix to align the research hypotheses, questionnaire and statistical analyses.
The outline for the quantitative part is:
- Brief discussion: Research hypotheses, Research approach, Research design, Questionnaire validity and reliability, Sampling and Statistical Analyses
- Questionnaire validity
- The research consistency matrix aligning everything
Questions can be asked by leaving comments in the Zoom application.
The second part of the webinar will start at 11:00 with the Qualitative part presented by Monique van der Walt.
In this part of the webinar the qualitative theory behind thematic analysis will be discussed. Braun and Clarke’s steps to thematic analysis will be considered in order to follow the coding processes. Practical coding examples will take you through the practical steps of coding within ATLAS.ti v8
The outline for the qualitative part is:
ATLAS.ti v8 is a qualitative data analysis software which is used as a workbench for qualitative analysis of large bodies of textual, graphical, audio and video data. This workshop will allow attendees to become familiar with qualitative thematic theory and coding within ATLAS.ti.
The following concepts will be discussed:
- Introduction to qualitative research
- Establishing trustworthiness in qualitative research
- What is thematic analysis
- Braun and Clarke’s approach to thematic analysis
- Conducting thematic analysis in ATLAS.ti V8: a practical example
The webinar will end at 12:00.
Prizes to win:
At the end of this webinar 2 lucky attendees will be in line for a raffle draw to win a prize of their choice (Either a Quantitative or Qualitative prize). You must attend the webinar to be part of the raffle draw.
The prizes explained:
When registering for this webinar, you would need to indicate which research design you are interested in (either Quantitative or Qualitative design) in order for Liminal to allocate either one of these prizes to the two winners. There will be two prizes up for grabs, which means one person will receive the quantitative research prize and another person will receive the qualitative research prize.
The prizes are explained below:
The quantitative prize will be awarded to one attendee. This prize will consist of one year access to an online quantitative research design course valued at R3120.
Quantitative research design for M&D studies: lessons from a statistician, this online course helps Master’s and Doctoral students as well as Supervisors busy with quantitative research, to design the questionnaire and sample correctly to be able to conduct the statistical analyses.
The qualitative prize will also be awarded to another attendee. This prize consists out of a one-hour online consultation session, plus a two-hour training session in ATLAS.ti. This prize is valued at R1800. This will allow Master’s and Doctoral students to be able to code their data using the ATLAS.ti computer-assisted qualitative data analysis software (CAQDAS) and consult the qualitative expert on their coding processes.
