Analytic Strategies and Analytic Tactics
Presenter: Nick Woolf, Henley Business School, University of Reading / Woolf Consulting, Santa Barbara, USA

Teaching the fundamental differences and relationships between analytic strategies and analytic tactics allows the gap between them to be bridged, and for ATLAS.ti to be used powerfully in any project.
It is challenging to teach students to use ATLAS.ti powerfully. The underlying reason is that the nature of QDA is fundamentally different from the nature of software. The tasks of a QDA are not pre-determined, but unpredictably iterative and emergent. Software, no matter how artful the user interface, is fundamentally deterministic: every function has a certain, predetermined outcome. This gap has to be intentionally bridged, or the software is used superficially: used only for the early stages of analysis, or only for those kinds of analysis that are so structured that the contrast between the nature of QDA and the nature of software is small.
One way to manage this challenge is to teach the fundamental differences and relationships between analytic strategies and analytic tactics, and how to bridge the gap between them. This allows ATLAS.ti to be harnessed powerfully from the beginning to the end of any kind of QDA. The contrast between analytic strategies and analytic tactics is proportional to how unstructured is the QDA, regardless of the research method. The more unstructured the QDA, the more there is a need for this perspective, and the greatest is the potential for ATLAS.ti to make a significant contribution. 

ATLAS.ti goes Pecha Kucha

Pecha Kucha (see also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PechaKucha) is a presentation form for transporting information quick and efficiently. You show twenty images, each for twenty seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images. Thus, you have a total of 6 minutes and 40 seconds to say what you want the audience to hear. It is fast, fresh and furious.
If you are interested, you are invited to submit ideas for presentations to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Of course the general theme will be ATLAS.ti :)
