The Research Methods Workshops are an initiative of the Association of Teachers of Technical Writing (ATTW) aimed at providing an opportunity for those entering the profession and those less trained in research to develop more sophisticated research skills.
This year, ATTW is sponsoring two Research Methods Workshops. Each workshop focuses on a methodology for data analysis and is designed to help researchers devise and try out an analytic approach.

Ryan K. Boettger, University of North Texas, on Conducting Quantitative Content Analysis focuses on CA as an empirical method for analyzing text, images, maps, sounds, and symbols. (Full workshop description).
