Staff Development is running training programs for SPSS (Statistical Package on Social Sciences), NVivo (qualitative data analysis package) and a suite of Research Skills workshops.
These workshops and training programs would be of benefit to researchers and staff in the faculty.
Research Skills workshops and training.
“There is increasing pressure on staff and students to produce good quality research within tight timelines. Many lack the necessary knowledge, skills and confidence to do this effectively. This series of courses covers a variety of aspects of the research process that impact on the quality of research. These are designed for both students and staff wishing to improve their research skills in a supportive, non-threatening atmosphere.”
Statistical Packages workshops
SPSS (Statistical Package for Social Sciences) is a powerful, but user friendly program for analysing data.
AMOS is widely used in Structural equation modelling or SEM which is a multivariate statistical approach which incorporates the elements of factor analysis, path analysis and regression.
NVivo has been designed for qualitative researchers working with rich text-based or multimedia information, and made to help organise and analyse non-numerical or unstructured data.
