CSEA organises training on qualitative data analysis using Dedoose software

CSEA organized a five-day capacity-building workshop on qualitative data analysis using Dedoose software. The training which held from March 20 to 24, 2023, was facilitated by Dr Terence Darko, Senior Researcher and Consultant at Associates for Change (AfC) and moderated by Ayodotun Ayorinde, Research associate and Project lead at CSEA for the project on “Increasing Access to Quality Education for Rural and Marginalised Children in West Africa— A Comparative Study of Accelerated Education and Girls Focused Programmes in Ghana, Nigeria and Sierra Leone”.

The training provided a platform for participants to learn the key features and capabilities of Dedoose software; gain hands-on experience with organising data and coding in Dedoose; and to also understand best practices for using Dedoose in qualitative data research projects.

The event was attended by over twenty participants from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), NOI Polls, Baze University, African University of Science & Technology, and the African School of Economics.
