Introduction to "R" for Qualitative Data Analysis
Do you want to learn about R but don't know where to start? This workshop is for you! R is a popular free software program used for quantitative analysis in both the humanities and sciences. Qualitative data science sounds like a contradiction in terms. Data scientists generally solve problems using numerical solutions. The capabilities of R in numerical analysis are impressive but it can also assist with Qualitative Data Analysis (QDA).
Please bring your own laptop to this workshop. You will need to install the latest versions of R and RStudio on your laptop before the workshop. You can Install R and R Studio from here.
Please download the RQDA package to analyse texts in R. RQDA assists with qualitative data analysis using a GUI front-end to analyse collections texts.
Alternatively, you can borrow a laptop from certain UBC Library locations. Don't forget you will still need to install the software on this loaner laptop by following the above instructions. For more information about borrowing a laptop, see: https://researchcommons.library.ubc.ca/borrowing-a-laptop/
