Müller Mixed Methods
Coachings, Workshops & Research in Qualitative Data Analysis
Software and method workshops
Do you need help learning MAXQDA?
Method workshops and software training are a part of my life for over five years. I am happy to offer you training for the analysis programs MAXQDA and ATLAS.ti and the associated methods. I will make you an individual offer for a workshop or webinar, either in German or English.
Consultation on methods for theses
Having trouble with your thesis?
I would be happy to help you get back on track! I am at your disposal for method questions from research questions to text feedback. My core competence is the implementation of social science and humanities methods with analysis software such as MAXQDA and ATLAS.ti. However, I would also be happy to accompany you in the writing process or prepare you for your defence.
What is qualitative data analysis?
It's not magic, it's qualitative data analysis!
In its essence, qualitative data analysis is all about structuring text (or images, video and audio) with your own analytical categories. You are looking for topics or themes within the text and attach short keywords, often called "codes" to the relevant segments that you have found. These codes help you first of all in finding your relevant text segments again, but they also allow you to quantify your results by counting the segments automatically.
Who cast the most weather spells in these documents? What is the difference between a male and a female witch? Where was that part when a bucket full of fish teeth was within a man's skull? All these questions are fairly easy to answer, as soon as you have left enough bread crumbs within the deep forest of qualitative data.
Hint: You can read much more about Qualitative Data Analysis on my blog Met-Hodos: (Re)considering the road of research and analysis.
Who am I?
Historian, freelancer, software trainer, witchcraft researcher and more
Indeed, I am interested in many things, except for cars, stars or television. There can be little left, you say? Think twice! Most relevant for you is that I am a professional historian. Therefore, I have been chosen to extract meaning from the most stubborn and resilient qualitative "data" out there. I have been trained to understand people who are dead for more than 500 years and many people might think that they have nothing to say any more. So if you are struggling with understanding your online trolls, unemployed teachers or retired dog sitters, be at ease, I am glad to be of help! And a small piece of advice via mail or telephone you will always get for free!
