This five day course covers a range of methods for the systematic analysis of qualitative data, and is appropriate for scholars with beginning to intermediate skills. The course is particularly well suited to researchers interested in mixed-methods, interdisciplinary, collaborative, or team-based approaches to text analysis. The course covers the building blocks of qualitative analysis, including theme identification and codebook development. Examples of specific methods covered include content analysis, word-based analysis, and semantic network analysis.

This course will provide an overview of the classical linear regression model and extensions for models appropriate for non-continuous dependent variables. A major objective of the course will be to expose participants to appropriate analysis and interpretation of results derived from such models that are widely used across the social sciences.

Do you want to create effective and visually appealing maps to use in reports and articles? Have you wondered if there are patterns in your data? This weeklong workshop combines lectures and hands-on exercises to guide participants through the basics of visualizing and analyzing geographic information and creating effective maps in a Geographic Information System (GIS). Sources for GIS data, including working with US Census data in GIS, and tools for analyzing spatial data will be discussed.

This five-day course covers a broad range of methods for analyzing qualitative data, and is appropriate for scholars with beginning to intermediate skills in text analysis. The course covers the building blocks of qualitative research, including: theme development, code definition, codebook development, teamwork, plus inductive and deductive approaches to theory-building. Examples of specific methods covered include content analysis, grounded theory, and word-based analysis. The course takes a hands-on approach, and uses both lectures and labs where participants analyze real data.
