A few weeks ago in class we were looking at something called Thematic Analysis. Thematic analysis is of the most common ways to gather qualitative research. It is a way of identifying themes within data. Themes are repeated patterns across the data that is used to gather insights and are related to a specific research question.
I have been using thematic analysis to analyse the transcript for my photography related interview. I have found this a very very useful tool as it has allowed me to gather excellent qualitative information that i can use as research to help answer my overall research question.
