Session-Ibegan with the address of guest speaker, Dr.R.K Singh, Dean, Department ofCommerce, DSE, University of Delhi. He deliberated on the importance ofQualitative research and its various aspects. He explained that just gatheringof information is not research and also any decision based on facts alone isnot a research or transportation of facts from one place to another in thestrict regimen of research also is not called as research. Research issystematic collection and analysis of information in order to understand thephenomenon about which one has shown interest. He told that the purpose ofresearch is to create knowledge, to add something to the existing knowledgebase and discovery. Based on research problem, strategies for research needs tobe decided and based on strategies tactics of the research should be decided.He also handled the queries from the participants in between his session andafter.

Laterin the second session of the day, Dr.H.K.Dangi covered the topics related to identificationof Research problem and issues of like scale. He discussed with the participantsthe various issues that come up during the qualitative data collection andanalysis. Some key learning that participants got during the sessions were thatwhen there is no clarity on the research problem or the research problem isvaguely defined, it is better to opt for the exploratory research. Also, postCOVID-19 experimental research design is going to be more relevant. There arenumber of factors to be considered while selecting a research problem forexample: topic should be of interest, it should be original, data should beavailable, etc.

2nd October

Thesessions for the day were devoted to qualitative data analysis through NVivo.Dr. Dangi helped the participants in installing NVivo. He explained thematicanalysis and content analysis is and how it can be used in qualitative research.Participants were demonstrated as to how to import document to NVivo, wordcloud can be formed from a document in NVivo and how to exclude words from wordcloud. Participants also created tree map and did cluster analysis using NVivo.Key learnings for the day, for the participants were, Text search in document,Sentiment analysis/ opinion analysis and how it can be used in research throughNVivo, Preparation of node matrix and charts, Import of image and audio toNVivo and its content analysis using NVivo, Transfer/ import of article frominternet in the form of PDF to NVivo using NCapture and creation of its wordcloud, etc.


3rd October

Thespeaker covered qualitative data analysis using Tableau and R. Participantslearnt as to how to import excel file to tableau, do systematic review ofliterature using tableau, create geographical map, forecast on the basis oftime series or past trend, develop a story using tableau and conduct granularanalysis in tableau.

Participantswere demonstrated as to how to conduct text mining using R. Key learnings were,creation of word cloud, tree map, cluster analysis using R as well as sentimentanalysis using R, transfer/ import of PDF to R and then creation of word cloud,tree map and cluster analysis.

Atthe close of the last session, an online assessment was conducted for theparticipants to evaluate them on their leanings during the one week of STTP.
