Community of Practice

About the Community of Practice

The ATLAS.ti Community of Practice program promotes peer learning in the international ATLAS.ti community of users. Once a month, researchers share their experiences using ATLAS.ti in specific research projects, discussing their analysis strategies, the use of specific tools, the integration of different procedures, and the utilization of findings produced with the assistance of the software. This year, presentations are scheduled in the English and Spanish languages.

For more information on this program, do not hesitate to contact Dr. Ricardo Contreras, director of Training & Partnership Development at ricardo.contreras@atlasti.com, phone number (541) 286-4391 (United States).

ATLAS.ti in Practice: Discourse Analysis

ATLAS.ti is one of the most widely used software packages for qualitative data analysis in the world. As such, it can be a powerful tool to conduct and manage discourse analysis projects.

This is shown by Dr. Trena Paulus, Associate Professor at the University of Tennessee, who recently presented her experience using ATLAS.ti in the Community of Practice Webinar Series and the 2013 ATLAS.ti User Conference.

Her discourse analysis study “Making Learning Ordinary: Ways Undergraduates Display Learning in a CMC Task” examines how nutrition science students talk to each other about their beliefs and their learning in computer mediated environments. For this purpose, Dr. Paulus and her colleague, Dr. Jessica N. Lester, collected and analyzed more than a thousand blog posts that students published in the online discussion forum of their class.

It was due to this large amount of data that Paulus and her colleague decided to enter new territory and to use ATLAS.ti for their discourse analysis: “We knew that we would have a lot o data that we needed to keep organized and that this is a good opportunity to use ATLAS.ti”

ATLAS.ti as a data management and analysis tool

First of all, the primary document family tool enabled the discourse researchers to group the blog posts of the students of the class, among others by the different discussion groups.

Likewise the quotation tool was equally useful for the project. Paulus and Lester used this function to segment the posts and comments with separate quotations, which they could organize with annotations and tags.

Furthermore, Paulus also emphasizes the analytical strengths of ATLAS.ti and its applicability for discourse analysis projects. For her project, the memo function was used to make analytical remarks for the segmented quotations. Moreover, the hyperlinking function allowed the researchers to illustrate the relationships among the different aspects of the blog conversations.

“This helped us to visualize and map the processes that were going on in the discourse”.

Also, with the use of codes another core analytical feature of ATLAS.ti was applied successfully. Paulus and Lester used the coding function to narrow the analytic focus on the important aspects of the hundreds of posts, among others to differentiate between blog posts based on beliefs and blog posts based on experiences. This eventually made the running of queries possible to see for example how often students talked about personal experiences before and after lectures.

Overall, Dr Paulus drew a very positive conclusion from the use of ATLAS.ti

“The recommendations that we would make for discourse researchers is that ATLAS.ti can be very helpful for project management, especially if you work with large datasets, and also for analysis, even if you are not using the codes at all you are able to annotate what you see in the data and to connect and illustrate the data with the hyperlinking tool”.

Moreover, she emphasized other useful features of ATLAS.ti for discourse analysis:

- Systematic collaboration: Every participating researcher could look trough the data, add analytic memos, comments and make hyperlinks. Each object is clearly assigned to an author, which allows flexible merging and multiplication of projects.

- Transparency: All the activities you made can be recorded by using the date stamp and the comment fields

- Staying close to the data: By synchronizing the transcript with the actual audio or video files

Dr. Trena Paulus is associate professor, instructional Technology. University of Tennesse Knoxville. She coordinates the graduate certificate program in qualitative research methods and teaches courses in instructional technology. Her book, “Digital Tools for Qualitative Research”, will be published by Sage in December 2013. Her primary area of research is discourse analysis of computer-mediated communication environments.
