The Bright Spots Mini-Lab supports the growing interest in qualitative and mixed methods research among public health practitioners, students, and researchers. “Learning Lab” sessions provide attendees with an opportunity to learn from and consult with experts on activities that build on the qualitative research skills they’ve learned in classrooms or while at work in their agencies.
Template analysis is a structured approach in which researchers identify major domains covered in a data collection and provide summaries of participant responses for each domain. They then place each summary in a matrix to identify recurring themes under each domain.
In this workshop, attendees will build their understanding of:
1. Recognizing when rapid qualitative methods would be most appropriate
2. Describing the steps of template analysis as a rapid qualitative method
3. Proposing how to use template analysis in one’s own research program
