This eStudy, presented by the American Evaluation Association, introduces participants to coding and thematic analysis, two foundational strategies for working with qualitative data. The workshop features hands-on, skill-building opportunities and presents a set of guiding questions that evaluators can use to focus analyses and consider essential ethical issues such as positionality and cultural competence. Real-world examples and group discussions enable participants to explore how these techniques have been applied in various evaluations. A carefully curated resource list is provided to support participants’ future learning and analytic endeavors.
Participants will learn:
- Strategies for developing a codebook and coding textual data
