AMEI Education Grand Round:Template Analysis – How Is It Useful for Health Professions Education Research?6 Jul 2022 (Wed) | 5.00pm - 6.00pm |
View eLecture here
Template Analysis (TeA) is a form of thematic analysis that is highly flexible to the needs of different studies and emphasises a balance between freedom and structure in the analytic process. In this session,
Prof Nigel King will outline the development of TeA and locate it within the wider spectrum of thematic approaches.
He will describe the typical steps in conducting TeA and explore the method’s key features, including the use of a priori themes, the iterative process of developing a template and the kinds of quality control techniques that can be used to ensure analysis is well-conducted. The points will be illustrated with his personal examples and others’ research in a range of settings, including health professions education.
In this three-hour workshop, Prof King will take participants through the steps involved in conducting TeA. The session will have a strong hands-on emphasis, with participants working with extracts from Prof King’s own data to try out key aspects of TeA.
Participants should leave with a good grasp of the practicalities of analysis with TeA and an understanding of its distinctive features that will enable them to make informed decisions about how and when to use it. There will be a small amount of recommended (but not essential) prior reading for the workshop.
