Introduction to qualitative research methods and qualitative data analysis software.
For whom: The workshop is suitable for anyone involved in designing, conducting, evaluating or managing qualitative research. Prior knowledge about qualitative research is desirable but not required.
Introduction:The purpose of this workshop is to introduce participants to the fundamental concepts of qualitative research and equip them with practical skills needed to design and implement qualitative research projects.
