2. State of the Art: Integrating Software with Qualitative Analysis
Raymond C. Maietta, Ph.D., ResearchTalk, Inc.
10:00 am – 1:00 pm, June 7th, Hartford CT
This workshop demonstrates that community-based researchers can use 
qualitative software to manage and analyze multiple forms of data (text, 
audio, video and/or graphic files) without diminishing the methodological 
integrity of their work. This workshop will focus on the variety of data 
formats available for use within qualitative software such as ATLAS.ti 
and MAXqda, including episode summaries and profiles, memo writing, 
codebook and theme evolution, strategies for data review and analysis, 
and output and visual diagramming tools. Dr. Maietta is president and 
founder of ResearchTalk Inc., which provides training on all phases of 
qualitative analysis to university, government, non-profit and corporate 
researchers. 
Workshop Fee: $150 (regular) / $75 (student)

Ellen Cromley, Ph.D., Senior Research Associate, The Institute for 
Community Research
9:00 am – 3:00 pm, June 7th, Hartford CT
This workshop emphasizes GIS functions and data that can be used to 
describe neighborhoods from social, spatial, perceptual, and 
administrative dimensions in community-based research. Participants will

GIS procedures demonstrated in the workshop. Dr. Cromley has conducted
