The Cathie Marsh Institute has a range of upcoming courses that focus around gaining Quantitative Research Skills in Social Science.

All are welcome to attend!


Our first courses include:


NVivo for Qualitative Data Analysis - 17 October 2019

This course introduces NVivo as a data management tool. The various uses of NVivo will be presented and discussed.  Included will be working in teams, adding in notes, importing files, and using NVivo for managing literature.  Examples of qualitative and mixed methods research will be presented to showcase how NVivo can be used to manage large amounts of various data.


Fuzzy Set Qualitative Comparative Analysis (fsQCA)- 25 October 2019

This one-day training course will attract those doing case-study research, those doing comparative research, and those who want to extend their skills in fuzzy set analysis from beginner to intermediate levels. It will suit qualitative as well as quantitative and mixed-methods researchers; all are welcome.


Introduction to Data Analysis 1 & 2- 7 and 8 November 2019

Introduction to Data Analysis 1 is designed for those who would like to know more about the theory and practice of quantitative methods, but lack a background in statistics. Rather than burdensome mathematics, the course focuses on practical research skills. In particular, it emphasises hands-on practical learning and uses real-world data and cutting-edge software.

Introduction to Data Analysis 2 builds on the skills taught in Introduction to Data Analysis 1. Namely, data management, summary, and visualisation. In particular, the course introduces methods to analyse the relationship between variables using cross-tabulation and linear regression analysis. Like the IDA 1, it emphasises hands-on practical learning and uses real-world data and cutting-edge software.
