2020 FOUNDATIONS FOR CHANGE: Thomas I. Yamashita Prize

Nominations due January 13th, 2020

ISSI is now accepting nominations for the FOUNDATIONS FOR CHANGE: Thomas I. Yamashita Prize. The award of $2,500 honors an outstanding social change activist/scholar in California whose work transforms the existing social landscape and serves as a bridge between the academy and the community. The Prize uses a nomination system, where someone other than the nominee identifies the nominee, their contributions, and the kinds of expertise they bring to understanding how change works. Nominations are due by 5pm on Jan. 13, 2020. Read more here.

ATLAS.ti Training [PC Version]

November 16-17, 2019

This workshop will provide both a conceptual background and practical experience in computer assisted qualitative data analysis (CAQDA) using ATLAS.ti. After instruction in the fundamental aspects of CAQDA, the course turns to the logic of the ATLAS.ti program, and how it functions as a tool for CAQDA.

By the end of the course, participants will have all the conceptual and practical tools necessary to employ ATLAS.ti in their current or future projects involving qualitative data.

The workshop will be limited to 12 participants so that everyone receives individual attention. Sliding scale: $400-700. Hosted by the Center for Ethnographic Research. Learn more and register here.
