This QMiP-sponsored workshop ran at the #PsyPAG2011 conference. Postgraduate psychologists attended the workshop and worked together to tap into their existing Microsoft Word skills and apply these to analysing qualitative data. Not to miss a great opportunity, the workshop attendees are hoping to continue working together to collaborate on a 'how to' guide to share their knowledge with others - watch this space!
