This workshop offers an introduction to Qualtrics survey software, a package available (at no cost to researchers) for use across Duke's campus and medical center. This powerful, easy-to-use system is a great way to collect information online, whether as part of a research protocol or for administrative purposes such as program evaluation. This workshop will introduce participants to the Qualtrics system, demonstrate how to set up an account, create a questionnaire and access its results. It will also cover some basic tools that can be used to customize the questionnaire to fit your needs, such as using display and skip logic to collect more detailed information from a subset of your audience. The workshop is taught through the Duke Initiative on Survey Methodology (DISM) in collaboration with the Duke Office of Information Technology (OIT). Participants will receive a very brief overview of the consulting and other services DISM offers to help Duke researchers develop and conduct surveys.

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.

For many basic charts and graphs, Excel is one of the easiest ways to create a data visualization. Figuring out how to get Excel to produce exactly the chart you want, however, can be a bit of a headache. In this workshop, we will learn how to create and modify many different charts within Excel, in addition to learning how PivotTables can help arrange the data in the best way for the chart we want. We will also cover how to get the best results when taking charts out of Excel and putting them into documents, presentations, and other programs. Note: this workshop focuses on the charting capabilities of Excel and starts from a beginning level. While some experience with Excel is encouraged, this is not an advanced Excel workshop. Recordings of additional Excel workshops: - Basic Data Cleaning and Analysis for Data Tables - Advanced Excel for Data Projects
