Event date: Friday, January 20, 2012, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM
Location: CTE - UNH 3030

Words vs. Numbers: Dealing with Qualitative Data (Event Flyer)
Jackie Dewar, Ph.D., Mathematics

[Video Recording]

This workshop will begin with a brief discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of qualitative and quantitative data as evidence in scholarly studies of student learning. Two approaches to analyzing (coding) qualitative data will be presented and participants will engage in coding a data set during the workshop. Concepts such as inter-rater reliability and predetermined and emergent categories will be described in simple terms. The goal is for participants to leave with basic knowledge, accessible resources, and increased confidence in their ability to draw and justify conclusions from qualitative data.

Please RSVP to teachers@lmu.edu or (310) 338-5866.

This event is part of the Quantitative and Qualitative Skills Workshop (QQSW) series.
