This week I learnt a whole lot more about framework analysis, having made the trip to City University London to join others in the COCAPP team for a NatCen training event. This was also my first introduction to the use of NVivo (a computer-assisted qualitative data analysis software package), my experience having previously been with Atlas.ti.
Elsewhere the RiSC project team convened, via teleconference, for an important decision-making meeting. We’re entering the closing stages of this study, and it’s interesting stuff: about which I’ll be able to say more in time.
And, as planned, this was also the week I made the short hop to Cardiff Met (at the invitation of Lynette Summers in the University’s Library and Information Services) to meet with folk there to talk about my experiences in using this blog, and other things, to bring my research and writing to a wider audience. That was fun, and I hope useful, too.
Along with some classroom teaching, marking, a committee meeting and reading a nearly-there doctoral thesis that just about sums up my recent workplace activities. Varied, as always. Looking ahead, I realise that (unusually) I’ll be missing the next meeting of Mental Health Nurse Academics UK due to take place at Lincoln University on February 18th. Other commitments have won out on this occasion.
