The Social Network Analysis (SNA) Institute offers participants the opportunity to learn key network concepts (e.g., centrality, extensity, and power) and to conduct sophisticated network analyses with software that is freely available to the public. Participants will employ an innovative analytic method (Network Analysis of Qualitative Data —NAQD) capable of powerfully blending quantitative, mathematical, and qualitative principles to analyze text data. Given the abundance of texts and other types of data that can be coded, the use of network principles to study actors, codes, and texts, has the potential to enhance the analytic research process —by supporting or corroborating the results obtained through qualitative analytic techniques. No other workshop on SNA will provide participants with the opportunity to conduct NAQD and to explore its potential to examine issues in higher education.
