    This course explains the fundamentals of qualitative coding and ATLAS.ti in one concise session. Both inductive and deductive approaches will be covered. The course is built upon a hands-on approach and concrete exercises, with ample time for questions that are relevant for the participants’ own research.

    One phase in qualitative research entails coding. Coding is the process of giving tags to (fragments of) texts, images, video, or audio as a way to yield a systematic understanding of the contents of data. This process can be structured by computer programs, such as ATLAS.ti.
