Saved on the
Master in Cognition and Communication
The course falls in three parts. The first part is a set of
workshops dedicated to data analysis. The second part is a couple
of lectures on topics such as mixed methods and writing up of
research projects. The third part is a series of project workshops
where students work on their own research projects.
The data analysis cover both quantitative and qualitative data
analysis. These workshops are placed in the beginning of the course
to allow students to plan ahead: It is generally a very good idea
to know what type of analysis you will be conducting before you
collect any data, and in quantitative research it is not just a
good idea - it is imperative.
The quantitative data analysis workshops introduce students to
fundamental procedures in quantitative data analysis. This will
include a tutorial in SPSS by way of a sample data set and
walkthrough in Bryman (5th edition).
The qualitative data analysis workshop introduces students to
general procedures of qualitative data analysis. This includes an
introduction to coding procedures and thematic analysis by way of a
sample data set from an interview project.
The workshops in the third part of the course will be structured
around the various research projects conducted by the students.
