This course is designed to give a theoretically-informed, hands-on introduction to the doing of thematic analysis. The teaching combines a range of pedagogical styles and activities, from mini-lectures through classroom discussion, small-group and individual- class-time activity, and homework. At the end of the teaching session, the students have a deep understanding of the potential (and limitations) of thematic analysis, and what doing thematic analysis looks like in practice. Due to the nature of qualitative analysis, not every aspect is covered in depth, but students gain foundational skills related to coding and starting theme development that set them on the path for doing rigorous and theoretically/methodologically coherent analysis.
