Qualitative Methods in Practice: Coding: Sherlock Holmes or Hercule Poirot?

Target Audience: PGRs and ECRs who are interested in learning more about the application of qualitative research methods.

Process: Webinar - Presentation and discussion

Speaker: Dr Corentin Curchod & Prof Laurie Cohen


After a brief presentation about coding in the research process, we will do a hands-on exercise and identify some good practices for inductive coding. The objective of the session is to encourage you to reflect on how to best use qualitative data in a research project. In particular, is coding primarily about searching for clues (Sherlock Holmes) or using intuition (Hercule Poirot)? Data tend to speak by themselves, but we sometimes fail to listen to them. Coding is the process of listening to the data and helping them reveal what they have to say.
