This workshop provides an overview on the rationales and methods for qualitative data collection. Qualitative research methods, including in-depth interviews, focus groups, archival analysis, and participant observation, vary considerably in the resources and time required to execute them reliably, and in the types of data they generate. Which data collection techniques are appropriate to which kinds of research questions and projects, and how do you execute these methods well? How are issues of reliability and validity considered and weighed in qualitative research? This research workshop will provide an introduction to a range of qualitative research methods as well as an overview of the strengths and weaknesses of each approach.

Tables of data, like those you see in spreadsheets or relational databases, are the foundation of most data-driven research today.  There are many pitfalls of working with these tables, though, that most people end up having to learn the hard way.  In this workshop, we'll take a dataset that has a variety of different properties and learn to work through many common steps of data-driven research to clean and begin analyzing the data.  We'll be using Excel to make sure the methods we suggest can be reproduced easily "at home," but many of these techniques are important for other data analysis tools as well. No data experience necessary.
