Methods Lab

As part of the appointment for the new professorship for qualitative methods of empirical social research (Prof. Dr. Ruth Ayaß), we have established a new Methods Lab at the Faculty of Sociology.

Our long-term goal is to anchor computer-assisted qualitative data analysis (QDA) within Bielefeld sociology's areas of expertise. The Methods Lab will offer instructors and researchers of the Faculty of Sociology the opportunity to work professionally with qualitative and quantitative data.

We offer six reservable workstations, featuring

  • modern hardware
  • a wide range of QDA software
  • video and image editing software
  • accessories (headphones, foot pedals)
