'How to do qualitative coding analysis'


#phdchat tweet log - 31st August 2011


@NSRiazat - Welcome to #phdchat - the topic tonight is 'how to do qualitative coding analysis' (#phdchat user request)

@cubanba - @NSRiazat hi I'm around tonight #phdchat great topic!!

@srossmktg - Off week for #phdchat? At least for quant/experimental...

@just_aoife - #phdchat Miles and Huberman book a great start, I highly recommended it for an overview of qual coding

@debbiefuco - Re qualitative coding analysis--do you set these up before research or do you wait until research complete? #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @cubanba Hi - it was a very popular topic but I guess not relevant to everyone on #phdchat :)

@cubanba - #phdchat I'm a bit Freetown in my coding I read and re read and listen to my data then sketch out a basic model or flow diagram

@NSRiazat - @SueFolley Thanks for the #phdchat topic RT Sue. :)

@debbiefuco - @cubanba Flow diagram? #phdchat

@librarygirlknit - @debbiefuco depends on perspective but I'd wait till data collected and create codes during analysis #phdchat

@debbiefuco - @librarygirlknit Can you predict what some of your themes or codes will be ahead of time? Are codes themes? Inexperience showing. #phdchat

@LBA_OX12 - Lurking tonite #phdchat

@lizith - I'll hang around tonight, but not much to offer as I've more or less done my own thing and avoided serious coding #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @cubanba #phdchat I'm a bit Freetown in my coding I read and re read and listen to data then sketch out a basic model or flow diagram (same)

@librarygirlknit - @debbiefuco Codes come from.themes. Can list.what you want to look for, but I'd let data do the talking/leading #phdchat

@debbiefuco - LPP = legitimate peripheral participation = Wenger (sorry part of my research topic) RT @LBA_OX12: Lurking tonite #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @debbiefuco @cubanba flow diagram is a great way to map out themes from data and link them up. #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @kiwicito definitely no oversight. Neither's mine. Just be sure to defend why you haven't used other approaches.It's ok to be novel #phdchat

@Janshs - qualitative coding is interesting in terms of theoretical framework/approach #phdchat e.g. it can sometimes be OK to ... 1 of 2

@debbiefuco - @librarygirlknit Thanks, that clarifies the topic for me. #phdchat

@Janshs - 2 of 2 #phdchat change coding systems as new themes emerge .... does anyone agree/disagree?

@librarygirlknit - @debbiefuco you might be surprised what emerges, and so discover new themes :) #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @cubanba - listening to data is key as opposed to going into data analysis with pre-conceived codes. #phdchat

@kiwicito - Are people pegging themselves to a QA tradition like Oral, Narrative, Grounded, Framework??? I feel exposed as I'm not. #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @Janshs totally agree - its an iterative process #phdchat

@SueFolley - I am using template analysis - so some codes come from lit review/expected themes and others come from data #phdchat

@debbiefuco - That would be great! RT @librarygirlknit: @debbiefuco you might be surprised what emerges, and so discover new themes :) #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @kiwicito am Grounded theory - Straussian. #phdchat

@librarygirlknit - @Janshs totally agree :) #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @kiwicito absolutey not. I also tried to but it just didn't work. Just clearly justify why you didn't adopt the other approaches #phdchat

@JaneDavis13 - @Janshs not sure about changing systems but agree that flexibility is key -> theoretical sensitivity ... #PhDchat

@JaneDavis13 - @kiwicito I am using #GT as a framework #PhDchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @SueFolley me too. I found coding my lit review on NVivo helped me begin my data coding and develop it from there #phdchat

@librarygirlknit - @kiwicito trying to at mo, but failing ;) am constructive approach but not that confident with data approach #phdchat

@SueFolley - I am using Nvivo to code my data - decided on some codes, used it on small sample of data then refined before applying to all data #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @Janshs #phdchat Agreed - have to be flexible with coding. Some of my codes/concepts have changed over the 2 years.

@merry30 - @kiwicito I'm not using a particular framework. It's grounded I suppose in that it comes/will come from participants' own words. #phdchat

@LBA_OX12 - @EmmaBurnettx @SueFolley How did U code yr lit review? By theme? Did U do it as U wrote or later? #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - Anyone still get confused about differences between categories, codes and themes? (and what ever else there is!) #phdchat

@SueFolley - @LBA_OX12 I didn't code my lit review - just got some ideas for codes from themes coming from lit review #phdchat

@merry30 - @librarygirlknit Same as me then - taking your codes/themes from what your participants say? #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @SueFolley am doing all coding/concepts/memoing on Word. Never came across a CAQDAS software that I liked look of. #phdchat

@Janshs - I like RT @SueFolley I am using template analysis - so some codes come from lit review/expected themes and others come from data #phdchat

@SueFolley - @EmmaBurnettx yep - I am treating them as all the same :)) #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @LBA_OX12 @SueFolley I did mine initially by broad themes and after a first very rough was written #phdchat

@lizith - @kiwicito probably worth checking out what your sup'r thinks - I'm not tied to any particular tradition and my sup'r encouraging #phdchat

@librarygirlknit - @EmmaBurnettx yes :) codes can cope with but categories and themes? :) #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @SueFolley glad I'm not the only one! :) #phdchat

@mkooleady - @debbiefuco #phdchat Coding depends on your methodology and philosophy. In some, categories emerge. In others, codes are pre-determined

@mkooleady - @SueFolley #phdchat I have used nVivo, but chose Atlas-TI because of excellent student discount.

@SueFolley - @NSRiazat I find Nvivo not intuitive but hoping it will be useful in doing queries etc #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @lizith @kiwicito I agree that supervisors are fundamental in this decision. Although I did have to work hard at convincing mine! #phdchat

@NSRiazat - Is anyone else memoing as they code their data. I write my thoughts next to each quote from interview literally line by line. #phdchat

@librarygirlknit - @merry30 yup. Not at that stage in phd but just finished that in short research project for work #phdchat

@SueFolley - @EmmaBurnettx I think of themes as being overarching ideas but codes/categories interchangeable #phdchat

@drjavafox - Hi #phdchat I'll be lurking as like @lizith I did my own thing (chaotic, messy, worked for me) AND I have a PPT prez to write!

@NSRiazat - @mkooleady @debbiefuco - emerge is key word with categories/codes. #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @NSRiazat it definitely helps when conceptualising the data. I forget things easily if I don't memo! #phdchat

@mkooleady - @NSRiazat #phdchat Great question. I'm just starting some coding for a pilot. So, I will try to memo, but not started yet. Do you?

@SueFolley - @mkooleady yep Nvivo is expensive if purchasing yourself. #phdchat

@librarygirlknit - @merry30 made a looooong list of emerging concepts while reading data and refined ,#phdchat

@LBA_OX12 - Thx for all the congrats - now I can officially claim 2 Blong #phdchat

@mkooleady - @EmmaBurnettx @NSRiazat #phdchat What kinds of things do you memo?

@librarygirlknit - @NSRiazat how do you manage that in Word? #phdchat

@merry30 - @nsriazat I'm planning to memo as I go, when I get to interviewing (in a couple of weeks!). Important within mixed methods too #phdchat

@SueFolley - @NSRiazat I write memos and then link them to codes in Nvivo #phdchat

@mkooleady - @SueFolley #phdchat Student price for Atlas: $99 USD Fully featured.

@NSRiazat - @mkooleady @EmmaBurnettx anything that strikes me about the data - random first thoughts at reading. Some of it really useful now #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @mkooleady @NSRiazat key thoughts about how this links with literature, how it compares with what others have said & my assumptions #phdchat

@Janshs - #phdchat @JaneDavis13 maybe different thmes rather than different overall system?

@NSRiazat - @mkooleady @EmmaBurnettx (2 of2) I am writing up the narrative #phdchat

@mkooleady - @NSRiazat @EmmaBurnettx #phdchat Yes, I have to remember to do a few notes after conducting interviews, too. Just so tired after!

@EmmaBurnettx - @merry30 @nsriazat Very helpful if using constant comparative analysis #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @mkooleady nothing too complicated just initial thoughts about what I thought data was saying. #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @mkooleady @NSRiazat They are certainly very mentally draining aren't they?! #phdchat

@SueFolley - @mkooleady yep - that is tons cheaper than Nvivo!! #phdchat

@kiwicito - I think that the MRes part of the programme is great on intro to philosophy and methodology - but sucks on QA skills building. #phdchat

@just_aoife - #phdchat I found memos very useful in NVivo, especially for large data sets. Anything striking/strange/possible latent meanings etc

@NSRiazat - "@EmmaBurnettx: @merry30 @nsriazat Very helpful if using constant comparative analysis #phdchat" - yes agree.

@sarahthesheepu - learning from #phdchat 2nite as am doing qualitative coding using nvivo 4 1st time - previous scissors / highlighters

@kiwicito - I'm running my MBP through my iphone as i'm out tonight - but the delay really sucks :o) #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @sarahthesheepu I still like the coloured pens and paper too! #phdchat

@mkooleady - @SueFolley #phdchat You just have to prove you're a student to get student $

@kiwicito - @just_aoife #Nivo Annotations and Memos are great! Also started to create relationships between codes #phdchat

@sarahthesheepu - @EmmaBurnettx i feel a bit lo tec but really do like it #phdchat

@mkooleady - @EmmaBurnettx @sarahthesheepu #phdchat You know, I am still a sucker for pens and paper. I think better on paper.

@webnemesis - just got in! What if dept.don't have Nvivo? Is there an open source alternative for coding? Can you work manually if 15 interviews? #phdchat

@kiwicito - @NSRiazat I'm goign to have to look up constant comparative analysis...what is it in 140 chars? #phdchat

@sarahthesheepu - @mkooleady @EmmaBurnettx feels easier to me #phdchat pay closer attention to text

@NSRiazat - @librarygirlknit - use tables with following heading - Transcript from interview/theoretical note/codes and concept/memoing. #phdchat

@mkooleady - @Janshs #phdchat. Agree. As themes & categories emerge, one must work iteratively with data-theme-data-theme . . .

@EmmaBurnettx - @sarahthesheepu I did the 2 day QSR NVivo course in Glasgow which I found really helped get me off the ground. It was excellent #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @librarygirlknit however Word not so useful when having to put all the similar sections of data/memoing together. #phdchat

@mkooleady - @Janshs @SueFolley #phdchat Interesting. I have withheld my lit review work so as not to bias my emergent coding, iterative work later

@mkooleady - @kiwicito @just_aoife #phdchat what's your methodology? In phenomenography, I must look for structural & relational links

@librarygirlknit - @NSRiazat oo like that style. Used Word for project and added.codes in square brackets within text and found it bit faffy #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @kiwicito constantly comparing themes/codes. Will send a reference to Kathy Charmaz text which describes it well when at laptop. #phdchat

@SueFolley - @mkooleady if you are doing grounded theory then that is the way to do it. I am not using GT #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @webnemesis yes. Have only used coloured pens and scissors in past research 20+ interviews. Some would say this is better #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @mkooleady @EmmaBurnettx @sarahthesheepu - agree - also like pen and paper. :) #phdchat

@kiwicito - @EmmaBurnettx I'm a self learning on #Nvivo - it took a while to get used ti it...I must be only using 50% of it so far #phdchat

@SueFolley - @mkooleady I am using template analysis which accepts codes decided in advance in addition to those emerging from the data #phdchat

@srossmktg - Glad I took a qualitative methods course, but so in left field on this discussion :P #phdchat

@mkooleady - @SueFolley #phdchat I'm using phenomenography which shares some procedures with grounded theory. I like the "discovery" aspect. :-)

@just_aoife - .@kiwicito #phdchat what criteria have you been using to decide what constitutes a relationship between codes? I struggle with this...

@kiwicito - @mkooleady Mine is Case Study Methodology, Data Collection Interviews and Documentary Analysis. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @EmmaBurnettx @mkooleady - very mentally draining. Always have brain ache after memoing. :) #phdchat

@merry30 - @emmaburnettx @sarahthesheepu I did the QSR two day course too. Highly recommended - and you can take your own data and get help! #phdchat

@lizith - @gconole @suefolley I'd normally join the geek club, but not on nvivo - found it too decontructive when I needed to be holistic #phdchat

@librarygirlknit - @NSRiazat @mkooleady @EmmaBurnettx @sarahthesheepu main risk is running out of colours :P #phdchat

@mkooleady - @srossmktg #phdchat Pardon the expression, but are you a "quantoid"? ;-) Heard that word at a conference . . .

@mkooleady - @lizith @gconole @suefolley #phdchat What was your methodology? Is there no way to be wholistic with NVivo?

@sarahthesheepu - @librarygirlknit @NSRiazat @mkooleady @EmmaBurnettx true #phdchat

@Janshs - @LBA_OX12 what'd I miss? #phdchat

@SueFolley - @mkooleady sounds like you are going with the correct approach for your methodology then... #phdchat

@srossmktg - @mkooleady I'd consider myself mixed methods, but depends on the research question. I lean more toward experimental. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @just_aoife @kiwicito - also interested in how to marry up relationship between codes & build a narrative of what emerges from data #phdchat

@librarygirlknit - Sorry tweeps, temporarily leaving... #phdchat

@mkooleady - @just_aoife @kiwicito #phdchat relationships that emerge are related to the research question . . . so tough in 140 characters!

@BobCesca - Ah, stats programs. Sadly I haven't used them in ages back when SPSS required coding and Nudist hadn't been renamed. #phdchat

@mkooleady - @SueFolley #phdchat Gosh. I hope so. It would be tough to change now!

@NSRiazat - @librarygirlknit Word does the job for me. Also use 'comment' box on right hand margin for memoing. Great as it numbers the memo. #phdchat

@mkooleady - @srossmktg #phdchat I do regret not doing more quantitative. But, there's only so much time in a PhD course!

@EmmaBurnettx - @mkooleady @just_aoife @kiwicito so you are also telling a flowing story right throughout the thesis #phdchat

@kiwicito - #phdchat is giving coded themes privilege BECAUSE they are repeated more often in the data - does it appear objectivist/positivist?

@lizith - @gconole @mkooleady @suefolley I guess it's down to research Q and what kind of analysis works best #phdchat

@kiwicito - @mkooleady Nice - but isn't most QA thats not GT doign the same - always keeping close to the CRQ? #phdchat

@srossmktg - @mkooleady Not a modeler, but I'm a consumer behaviouralist, so tend to use more quant. My thesis will have concept/qual/quant. #phdchat

@lizith - @webnemesis @emmaburnettx take a look at framework - Ritchie and Lewis - you can do that on paper or spreadsheet #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @kiwicito I don't think it is being objective - it just highlights the strength of the theme throughout - highlighting similarities #phdchat

@srossmktg - @mkooleady However, the qual method I'm using to fit my research question is more positivst (not content analysis, though). #phdchat

@LBA_OX12 - @Janshs I'm now enrolled at Soton as p/t PhD student #phdchat

@mkooleady - @kiwicito #phdchat CRQ?

@Janshs - @LBA_OX12 brilliant well done #phdchat

@kiwicito - I'm trying 4stages - "GT" inspired initial coding, attaching these codes 2 templates, and selected discourse analysis, & mapping #phdchat

@Janshs - @lizith @webnemesis @emmaburnettx oops read that as "follow #phdchat and watch Lewis"

@kiwicito - @mkooleady Critical Research Question, as opposed to Theoretical Research Questions or Interview Questions #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @lizith @webnemesis I like this framework - a nice recipe :) #phdchat

@Janshs - @kiwicito tis sounds very interesting, will you blog? #phdchat

@lizith - @Janshs @webnemesis @emmaburnettx am I missing Lewis - yikes got my priorities wrong! #phdchat

@mkooleady - @kiwicito #phdchat Oh, got it. Yes, I think close to research question is true for most qual. GT - I defer to Nasima

@kiwicito - This is my first official sit down #phdchat even though I've been chatting asynchronously for months!

@webnemesis - / @lizith @emmaburnettx thank you! In two weeks i'm starting a design for semi-structured interviews (N=15-17). Any advice welcome #phdchat

@Janshs - @lizith @webnemesis @emmaburnettx :) #phdchat

@cubanba - #phdchat@NSRiazat I think you do that by thinking of it as a three way conversation between you, your data and the literature

@mkooleady - @Janshs @kiwicito #phdchat Yes, can you blog on this and tweet the link? It is interesting.

@kiwicito - @EmmaBurnettx My point is - if 1 of 21 interviewees says something - who decides its anecdotal or important? #phdchat

@cubanba - @kiwicito: @EmmaBurnettx you do!! #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @webnemesis my biggest challenge was to have only a few questions (with probes). I initially had loads written down! #phdchat

@kiwicito - @Janshs blog at: http://t.co/KEq2YGc #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @mkooleady @kiwicito - agree - also think it's close to research question for qualitative grounded theory. :) #phdchat

@webnemesis - @Janshs @lizith @emmaburnettx lols always good. I fret a bit with semi-structured interviews,it would be the first time 2 conduct #phdchat

@mkooleady - @kiwicito @EmmaBurnettx #phdchat Kvale, 1999 discusses "craftsmanship" as an element of trustworthiness - Who decides what is valuable

@DrGarcia - Listening to "Labyrinth" and tinkering with ways to tell the story of my dissertation data and key findings using pictures. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @cubanba like idea of three conversation between data, you and literature to marry up the coding anf tell narrative. #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @kiwicito thats the subjectivity of it isn't it - you decide if this is important (or not) within the context of the study. #phdchat

@mkooleady - @NSRiazat @cubanba #phdchat Agreed. Another note for the wall.

@kiwicito - I read today that its good to code from your audio more often that the reify'd transcripts that lack much detail from the interview #phdchat

@LBA_OX12 - @lizith It's a repeat... #phdchat

@webnemesis - @EmmaBurnettx so it's better to have not too many q's but to be well structured to cover the objectives and research questions #phdchat

@Janshs - gr8 thx RT kiwicito @Janshs blog at: http://t.co/AEjNM5H #phdchat

@lizith - @LBA_OX12 than - I'll watch the end of it then :) probably will pick up story from last time round #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @cubanba @kiwicito That's the beauty of taking a constructivist or social constructionist perspective #phdchat

@kiwicito - @cubanba It comes back to a credibility question - who am I? Are we not as researchers ONLY storymaking in that case! #phdchat

@mkooleady - @webnemesis @EmmaBurnettx #phdchat Again, it depends on the methodology. Research objective can permit flexibility in how Qs are asked.

@webnemesis - / @EmmaBurnettx i finished quant./online surveys 2 months ago. Tthose folks who left their emails for follow-up will be interviewed #phdchat

@lizith - @kiwicito @cubanba I keep asking what the difference is between what I am doing and the story telling journalists do #phdchat no answers!

@EmmaBurnettx - @webnemesis definitely - I used only 7 questions (with probes) and interviews lasted for up to one hour (+sometimes) #phdchat

@mkooleady - @kiwicito @cubanba #phdchat Kvale 1999 might help with these ruminations.

@kiwicito - I like this too RT @NSRiazat: @cubanba like idea of three conversation between data, you and literature. But who voice is dominant? #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @webnemesis face-to-face or telephone interviews? #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @kiwicito @cubanba - credibility comes from themes/codes being closely embedded in the data. It's about meaning making from data? #phdchat

@mkooleady - @EmmaBurnettx @webnemesis #phdchat I open with a "describe your experience and let it flow--mostly list of topics to cover (semi-structured)

@kiwicito - @EmmaBurnettx I think I'm moving towards critical realist like my supervisor...hard not too :o) #phdchat

@aeratcliffe - Better late than never. I'm here. #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @kiwicito @cubanba - as long as the researcher stays close to data could be effectively as credible within methodology chapter? #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @lizith @kiwicito @cubanba I interviewed journalists/editors for my study and probably not much difference! They were brilliant! #phdchat

@webnemesis - @EmmaBurnettx mu superv. suggests to use an email (!!!) or Skype, though I may use a telephone. EMail could be handy, text is there #phdchat

@merry30 - @lizith (re Lewis) - I'm really glad you said that. Just changed channels! #phdchat

@kiwicito - Luv it! RT @cubanba I keep asking what the difference is between what I am doing and the story telling journalists do #phdchat no answers!

@Janshs - @kiwicito @NSRiazat @cubanba is it about the credibilty (trust) to speak *for* the participants? #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - great advice! RT @mkooleady @webnemesis I open with a "describe your experience and let it flow..... #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @kiwicito @cubanba thoughts are dominant voice is author of the thesis - using data/literature to add credibility to narrative. #phdchat

@lizith - @EmmaBurnettx @kiwicito @cubanba that's interesting - I do feel there is a big similarity with good journalism #phdchat

@webnemesis - @mkooleady @EmmaBurnettx sounds like a very good approach. Wrote it down. Though I still didn't decide on email vs voice interview #phdchat

@cubanba - #phdchat many students get absorbed in the data and forget to keep "talking" to the literature. That's what helps make a contribution

@savasavasava - dammit. shoulda tuned in to #phdchat today. will hopefully be able to catch up =/

@Janshs - @aeratcliffe hi #phdchat

@kiwicito - @cubanba Perhaps as researchers we have agreed to a hidden academic oath to search for the truth - and not what sells newspapers! #phdchat

@debbiefuco - @webnemesis and subjects have time to think over their answer #phdchat

@cubanba - @mkooleady: @kiwicito @cubanba #phdchat Kvale 1999 might help with these ruminations. yes kvale good ref

@EmmaBurnettx - @lizith @kiwicito @cubanba definitely is! #phdchat

@kiwicito - @mkooleady What's the full reference if I may? #phdchat

@lizith - @kiwicito @cubanba but if giving voice to those whose voice would not otherwise be heard. #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @webnemesis @mkooleady I would definitely recommend voice over text #phdchat

@cubanba - @lizith: @kiwicito @cubanba Keeping the conversation going with existing research helps avoid journalistic writing #phdchat

@mkooleady - @debbiefuco @webnemesis #phdchat But, in phenomenology, you might want the participants' pre-reflective experience #phdchat

@kiwicito - @aeratcliffe Great to see you! #phdchat

@kiwicito - @aeratcliffe Well your avatar! #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @kiwicito @cubanba truth is in the eye of the beholder :) #phdchat

@SueFolley - @EmmaBurnettx @webnemesis I did 17 semi-structured interviews, mixture of f2f, phone and Skype :) #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @cubanba - am looking at data and literature side by side. #phdchat

@debbiefuco - @mkooleady true, depends on the study #phdchat

@mkooleady - @kiwicito Kvale, S. (1995). The social construction of validity. Qualitative Inquiry, 1(19), 19-40. #phdchat

@kiwicito - @Janshs But who says what the participants think is any truer across the case? #phdchat

@webnemesis - @EmmaBurnettx @mkooleady did you use a voice recorder and then manually transcribe? *dont have livescribe, etc. #phdchat

@kiwicito - @cubanba I'm still reading as I analyze and some cool ideas have jumped out... it can tempt me to go back through prev. transcripts #phdchat

@merry30 - @suefolley did you notice a difference in responses/level of self disclosure etc? #phdchat

@SueFolley - @webnemesis you would get more considered responses by email but not as long I imagine #phdchat

@cubanba - @EmmaBurnettx: @kiwicito @cubanba truth is in the eye of the beholder :) #phdchat lol of course

@EmmaBurnettx - @webnemesis @mkooleady Yes a voice recorder then I transcribed. Helped me 'immerse' myself in my data (as they say!) #phdchat

@aeratcliffe - @NSRiazat @Janshs @kiwicito Thanks, good to be here. #phdchat

@SueFolley - @webnemesis people speak a lot faster than they type so you would probably get less data if via email #phdchat

@mkooleady - @webnemesis @EmmaBurnettx #phdchat I also use Adobe Connect or Elluminate. Export to f4 transcription software then manual transcr.

@cubanba - @NSRiazat: @cubanba - am looking at data and literature side by side. #phdchat that is how I do it :)

@EmmaBurnettx - @SueFolley @webnemesis Could that also be a potential limitation? #phdchat

@webnemesis - a colleague conducted via email interviewing scientists/why email rt @debbiefuco and subjects have time to think over their answer #phdchat

@SueFolley - @merry30 Not really - that was more down to personality. I did find the phone interviews shorter though probably... #phdchat

@VGoodyear - @NSRiazat I write a memo or I have a spreadsheet- 'things that are interesting' if it repeats I signpost where to #phdchat

@SueFolley - @merry30 because silence is more awkward on the phone, less small talk and less rapport I suppose #phdchat

@cubanba - @kiwicito yes I think you should never stop reading it's an iterative process data to ideas to lit and back round again #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @mkooleady @webnemesis Ahh yes - adobe connect. It's a great tool for interviews #phdchat

@webnemesis - @SueFolley @EmmaBurnettx seems like perfect approach! With manual transcrib.? did you write/blog somewhere about the process? #phdchat

@kiwicito - @EmmaBurnettx Very William James of you! #phdchat

@VGoodyear - @SueFolley how did you get Nvivo? #phdchat

@kiwicito - Me too! RT @NSRiazat: @cubanba - am looking at data and literature side by side. #phdchat

@webnemesis - true rt @SueFolley people speak a lot faster than they type so you would probably get less data if via email #phdchat

@Janshs - @kiwicito not sure what you mean #phdchat sorry

@EmmaBurnettx - @SueFolley @merry30 I also found telephone interviews challenging at times - especially with the less vocal particpants. #phdchat

@lizith - I'm off to catch up with Lewis - good to talk - see you all around #phdchat

@cubanba - @lizith: @kiwicito you have to make sure your voice is heard too. Reflexivity is so important. I wrote a paper look on my profile #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @kiwicito lol!! #phdchat

@cubanba - #phdchat sorry for the shameless self publicity lol!!!

@EmmaBurnettx - @webnemesis @SueFolley started blogging - but only 1 blog at the moment. Keep meaning to update it. I will put it on my to-do list! #phdchat

@ai1sa - am here in time to say hi! #phdchat

@LBA_OX12 - lewis awaits me too #phdchat

@SueFolley - @VGoodyear My Uni has Nvivo licences for some pcs - so can use it there, plus a licence for mobile desktop for use off-site #phdchat

@webnemesis - @lizith thank you for the reference! Good writing! #Lewis #phdchat

@kiwicito - @Janshs Which tweet - I'm struggling to keep a pace :o) #phdchat

@lizith - @cubanba @kiwicito did you ever see my blog on voice? http://t.co/PowGq18 #phdchat

@Janshs - @kiwicito LOL me too! #phdchat "But who says what the participants think is any truer across the case"

@EmmaBurnettx - @cubanba thank you for that - and self publicity is good! :) #phdchat

@SueFolley - @EmmaBurnettx yes definitely. I think people are probably more honest with voice interviews #phdchat

@librarygirlknit - .@NSRiazat thanks for a great.#phdchat :)

@kiwicito - Kepping in touch with the literature u sometimes find that people have already written about what u have found - so u keep looking! #phdchat

@aeratcliffe - @pigironjoe Add to your sched if available, Sept 9 11:30, #phd students getting together for lunch in #yeg. #phdchat

@SueFolley - @webnemesis yes to manual transcribing - does make you think about the data and what was said whilst transcribing #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @NSRiazat good lord - how quickly did that go?!! #phdchat

@Janshs - . @NSRiazat great chat this eve #phdchat thanks to Nasima and all

@SueFolley - @webnemesis and no to blogging about the process - was far too busy transcribing :)) it is very time consuming, but worth it #phdchat

@SueFolley - @EmmaBurnettx yes it was harder to read body language etc to know if they were thinking or finished the sentence :) #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @Janshs @NSRiazat ditto from me. Was a great chat - thanks! #phdchat

@kiwicito - @EmmaBurnettx Really fast!!! Can't wait until the next one #phdchat

@SueFolley - @EmmaBurnettx yes I think blogging a good idea but again something extra to do, so lower priority at the moment #phdchat

@merry30 - @suefolley @emmaburnettx That's interesting - but not surprising to me. I want to stick to f2f interviews only, if I can. #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @SueFolley @webnemesis you could put that on your to-do list also :) #phdchat

@merry30 - Does anyone on #phdchat use Livescribe? Is it worth the money? What's the recording quality like?

@kiwicito - Time for some attention for my lovely wife...by for now everyone. #phdchat... @janshs whatever was confusing DM me... I'll answer later.

@webnemesis - / @SueFolley i'm trying to prepare for it this autumn :) first to design questions. How long did it take for transcribing (N=17) #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @merry30 @suefolley hope to write a paper on the differences between them both and the challenges (on the to-do list also!) #phdchat

@cubanba - @lizith: @cubanba @kiwicito did you ever see my blog on voice? http://t.co/t9kyz5D #phdchat no thanks for that :)

@NSRiazat - @VGoodyear often lots of repetitions comes through. #phdchat

@SueFolley - @webnemesis lol - how much of my life spent transcribing? Actually I did it mainly on an evening as easy to do an hour here & there #phdchat

@SueFolley - @webnemesis you are welcome - good luck with the blog and don't forget to send us the link to it :) #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @webnemesis @suefolley will look forward to reading them:) #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - This is a great blog! @cubanba: @lizith: @cubanba @kiwicito did you ever see my blog on voice? http://t.co/zJYhWDb #phdchat

@SueFolley - @webnemesis I think I would rather not work it out.... but I do think it is worth doing yourself as it helps with thinking #phdchat

@SueFolley - @webnemesis I have done all data collection, have about 30 mins of data left to transcribe... #phdchat

@SueFolley - @webnemesis and hoping to finish all transcribing by the end of the week - yipee! :) #phdchat

@srossmktg - @nsriazat Hahaha, I think that's called being a pain in the qualitative neck ;) #phdchat

@indianscribes - Just 2 mins more than pros who tk 5 mins for a minute of audio! @suefolley: it took me approx 7 mins to transcribe 1 min of audio. #phdchat

@EmmaBurnettx - @webnemesis @suefolley just a couple of interviews and a few more focus groups left to transcribe. Back with lit review at mo #phdchat

@klbz - @AndreaZellner Fake it til you make it? (Act as if you're not an imposter until you truly aren't?) #gradhacker #phdchat

@SueFolley - @indianscribes ooh that makes me not too bad - however I am counting total interview so pauses etc -so probably not really as quick #phdchat

@NSRiazat - @srossmktg #phdchat
