Target group

This course targets researchers with an interest in the spatial dimensions in qualitative research on the integration of marginalized groups.

Learning outcome

Participants will learn to apply the software QGIS; They will learn about how qualitative data from interviews and observations can be coupled to physical location.

Course content

There is increasing interest in fields of study focused on the integration of potentially marginalized groups to apply qualitative methods that can account for and analyze the significance of place and space in the lives of persons targeted for integration measures. One emerging methodology is the use of qualitative methods in connection with Geographical Information Systems (GIS) to connect interview/ethnographic research to physical location. This two-stage course provides participants with a basic knowledge in the usage of GIS (using the software QGIS), as well as an introduction to adopting this approach in qualitative research.

Teaching method

The first part of the course takes place as a combination of lectures and demoes/exercises. Participants will need to bring their own laptop.

Preparation

Participants are asked to download the software QGIS in advance (this can be found in OsloMet’s Software Center)
