This workshop will provide an introduction to using programming tools (i.e. Python and R) for collecting and parsing information from public websites in a systematic and targeted way. The workshop will be led using Python. Code and workshop files will be made available for both Python and R.
This workshop completes all processes and analyses using code (i.e. there are no point-and-click methods). Individuals who want to participate in the “hands-on” portions of the workshop should have a little familiarity with either Python or R. Individuals without previous programming or coding experience are still welcome to watch, learn, and participate in the discussions.
This workshop is a general overview of mixed methods used in research. Mixed Methods Research Designs use a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods.
Dr. LaRossa and Dr. Mandy Swygart-Hobaugh present this joint session. Dr. LaRossa discusses the steps involved in building theoretically-rich qualitative analyses (the logics) and Dr. Swygart-Hobaugh outlines the specific features of NVivo qualitative research software that complement and facilitate these analyses (the logistics). NOTE: This session does NOT involve hands-on NVivo training -- see the workshop listings on this page for hands-on NVivo training opportunities.
