Coding qualitative data is messy and challenging, yet it is the first necessary step to data analysis regardless of the method you are using – e.g. thematic analysis, content analysis or discourse analysis.

To support those new to coding, Dr Britta Wigginton is running an introductory, half-day workshop to coding qualitative data. This workshop is the third in our series and will cover the following topics:

  • What does it mean to code (textual/qualitative) data?
  • For what purpose (or to what end) do we code data?
  • How do we code?


Dr Britta Wigginton is a Lecturer in the School of Public Health. Her program of research harnesses qualitative methods to explore the intersection of gender, health and the environment. Britta teaches both undergraduate and postgraduate health promotion courses. Britta is passionate about context-sensitive and reflexive qualitative research. She takes this energy into the classroom and her research to advocate for approaches, methods and ways of thinking and being for researchers and practitioners that challenge the status quo and work towards social justice.
