Qualitative Research Methods: Data Coding and Analysis

Massachusetts Institute of Technology via edX

This course may be unavailable.

Overview

This short course is adapted from a semester length graduate level course taught at MIT covering Qualitative Research Methods. The first half of the course is covered in 21A.819.1x, and covers an introduction to qualitative research and conducting interviews. This course consists of the second half of the course, and covers what to do with the data once you have started collecting it. This will include transcribing data, creating codes and codebooks, coding data, analyzing codes, and how to make sense of your analysis using existing and new theory.

You may have encountered other forms of data analysis in your studies and training. The form that we are teaching is the preferred method of Professor Silbey’s, one that she has used extensively throughout her career.
