This session will be presented in French.

Benoît Gauthier will present an accessible approach that can be used for qualitiative analysis of documents or other types of sources. Amidst a vast array of tools, from the most basic (cards, self-adhesive notes, etc.) to the most sophisticated (e.g., specialized software), are found solutions allowing greater rigour and enhanced productivity for the analyst. This presentation will focus on the use of Excel in support of qualititative analysis, including notions of database, coding, levels of analysis and aggregation of qualitative data. This session will be particularly useful to evaluators, consultants and students which already have some knowledge or experience of qualitative analysis to get the most of this presentation.

Presenter: Benoît Gauthier, President, Circum Network Inc. and Past President, Canadian Evaluation Society
