Digital Methods Workshops: Coding for Research
This workshop has been organised by the Data, Communication & New Technologies (DCT) Pathway and includes Advanced Qualitative Methods. The training is open to all PhD students across the 7 interdisciplinary Pathways within the White Rose Universities.
The Digital Methods Workshops series: These are introductory and interactive workshops designed to explore and critically think about digital methods, digital literacy and digital expertise. Students will learn some basics about digital methods and have a go at doing them as part of the workshop. They are designed to be introductory sessions, so best suited to level one or two students, although the discussions on critical reflection and literacy is appropriate for all levels. Those who want to add methods to an existing toolkit are also welcome.
In this workshop we will look at the basics of programming for research purposes. Beginning with what coding is and how we can talk about it and understand —you will develop skills that will allow you to collect and analyse data for your research, using a range of data sources. We will look at how we can communicate this by developing websites as online hubs of research.
