“Mastering Qualitative Research Methodology

and

Analyzing Qualitative/Categorical Data Using SPSS and NVIVO Software”

 

Qualitative research methods are becoming more widely used across a variety of disciplines. There has also been a renewed focus on the integration of qualitative and quantitative methods in addressing research questions/objectives.

 

Research Center for Training & Development (RCTD) is organizing an International Research Workshop “Mastering Qualitative Research Methodology and Analyzing Qualitative Data Using SPSS and NVIVO Software” on 26th – 27th September, 2012 through High Definition (HD) Video Conferencing.

This workshop aims to give participants a detailed understanding of qualitative methods, their theoretical foundations and their practical application. The workshop will help the researchers to effectively design their path to produce a high quality thesis and papers. The resource persons have adopted a case study based methodology, and researchers will be trained within their own context by taking various cases and examples from their own discipline. The workshop methodology includes lectures, presentations, case studies, use of softwares and robust training techniques.

 

The researchers from Universities, Institutes, R&D organizations and Social Sector organizations are invited to participate individually or institutional in their own auditorium/office/home from anywhere around the world.
