Introduction to Dedoose – Handout

Researchers are increasingly adopting the use of research and evaluation data apps (REDA) for both qualitative and mixed methods studies. This one hour seminar will give an overview of Dedoose, a cloud-based data analysis application (free for one month with nothing to install and setup is instant – sign up at www.dedoose.com). Dedoose training tutorials are available at www.dedoose.com.

Dedoose is a cross-platform cloud-based mixed-methods application which facilitates the management, coding and analysis of qualitative and mixed methods data and their integration with demographic and other quantitative data. Collaboration is one of the key drivers behind the development of Dedoose, allowing project owners to provide others with access to their projects, facilitating real-time online team engagement.

Using Dedoose as a Methodological Tool – Handout

Researchers are increasingly adopting the use of data analysis applications for mixed methods and qualitative studies. This 3-hour workshop discusses the impact of new developments in technology and the use of Dedoose, a cloud-based data application, to identify, manage and analyse qualitative and mixed methods data. An overview of analysis strategies is woven throughout the seminar and discussion highlights the influence that research design decisions have upon the methodology and, ultimately, the quality and credibility of a study. The workshop also explores and discusses strategies for multiple members of a research team to work simultaneously, in real-time, from any Internet connected device. Workshop participants are encouraged to discuss team strategies which improve the quality and efficiency of analysis results and presentation of findings.
