Our ATLAS.ti workshops at UC Berkeley are on hiatus but will resume
in Summer 2012.
For information regarding consulting, individual training, or on-site workshops at your research center, please e-mail cue [at] berkeley [dot] edu.
All workshops currently take place in the Wildavsky Room at the Institute for the Study of Societal Issues. The address is:
2538 Channing Way
Berkeley, CA 94720-5100
This two-day workshop course will provide both a conceptual background
and practical experience in computer assisted qualitative data analysis
(CAQDA) using ATLAS.ti. The workshop begins by examining
the core elements common to all 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 functions as a tool
for CAQDA. The majority of the workshop consists of hands on practical
instruction and exercises in ATLAS.ti. By the end of the
course, participants will have all the conceptual and practical
tools necessary to employ Atlas to its full capacity in their current
or future projects involving qualitative data.
Topics covered include: 1.How to perform the fundamentals of computer
aided qualitative data analysis in ATLAS.ti, 2. The specific
strategies necessary for dealing with different types of data including
ethnographic field notes, in-depth interviews, texts, audio, video,
and documents, 3. How to organize your data set, 4. How to construct
and deploy a coding scheme for your project, 5. Making the best
use of memos, 6. Inductive and deductive strategies for investigating
substantive relationships in your data, 7. The query tool and reverse
polish notation, and 8. Advanced functions in ATLAS.ti (i.e.
networks, geocoding, quantitative output, supercodes and snapshots,
multi-researcher projects, tools for inter-coder reliability, etc.).

All readings and handouts will be provided at the workshop. All
students receive a handbook detailing the course materials and templates
for various data set structures.
The cost to attend the two-day course is $550 for those in the
academic/non-profit sector and $750 in the corporate sector.
