Course Description

This workshop will provide both a conceptual background and practical experience in computer assisted qualitative data analysis (CAQDA) using ATLAS.ti. The workshop begins by examining core elements of CAQDA, regardless of methodological orientation, discipline/profession, or platform. After instruction in the fundamental aspects of CAQDA, the course turns to the logic of the ATLAS.ti program, and how it can function as a tool for CAQDA. The workshop consists of both instruction and hands-on exercises in ATLAS.ti. By the end of the course, participants will have all the conceptual and practical tools necessary to employ ATLAS.ti in their current or future projects involving qualitative data. The workshop will be limited to 15 participants so that everyone receives individual attention.


Corey M. Abramson is Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Arizona. He received his Ph.D. in sociology from UC Berkeley in 2012 and  spent the following year as a post-doctoral fellow at the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies at the University of California, San Francisco. Professor Abramson has over a decade-and-a-half of experience using, teaching, and developing methods of Computer Assisted Qualitative Data Analysis (CAQDA). Abramson has used ATLAS.ti in his own qualitative and mixed-methods projects including his book with Harvard University Press, and recent methodological pieces in Sociological Methodology, Ethnography, and Health Affairs.


The cost to attend the two-day course is $400 for UC Berkeley students, $450 for other students, $550 for those in the academic/non-profit sector, and $700 for all other participants. Register by November 9 to save $50.
