Are statistical testing and analyses that are supposed to be a part of your research a struggle for you? In this course, some common statistical tests will be presented. What are they for and what is the difference between them? How do you carry them out with the help of SPSS and how do you interpret the results? Or do you simply need to read and understand papers where statistics is used? What does it mean i.e. when p = 0,05? In this course, you will get the answer.

 

This course will discuss some of your alternatives. However, it will naturally not replace the contact with a statistician in more difficult cases.

 

SPSS is a license-based software. Consequently, you need to be in touch with the ICT-service before you can download and authorize the application to your computer!

Are you doing research interviews or videotaping sessions? Are you wondering about how to transcribe them? Which tools that are available? Perhaps your research material consists of old, hardly legible handwritten texts, which also need to be transcribed?

 

During the course, the transcription programmes EXMARaLDA (for audio files), ELAN (for video recordings combined with an audio file) and Transkribus (for text files) will be introduced. These programmes are free to use but require that you install them on your computer. In addition, the possibilities of transcription by automatic speech and text recognition will be discussed.

 

If possible, bring your own computer to the course and install the programme of your choice beforehand. You can access the programmes online:

http://exmaralda.org/en/ (EXMARaLDA),

https://tla.mpi.nl/tools/tla-tools/elan/ (ELAN)

Does your research have a geographical aspect? Do you need to include maps and geographical data in your papers and presentations? A geographic information system (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage and present spatial or geographic data. In QGIS, you can import maps free of charge from the National Land Survey of Finland or the world wide Google street maps. You can add your own data and export the map as a PDF. In a lecture, you can also zoom in and out of your map if needed, provided that QGIS is installed on the computer you use.

 

The software QGIS is free to use but must be installed on your computer. Please, choose the most updated version 3.4.2 Madeira.
