MaxQda Workshops

Basic workshop

The MaxQda introductory workshop is a one-day workshop, and can be one-to-one or group. It is divided into three sessions:

  • Discovering MaxQda: the interface, creating a project, importing, then exploring documents (annotating, searching…)
  • Coding: coding your documents, analyzing the coded extracts
  • To take it further: mixed methods, introduction to advanced analysis options, introduction to visualization tools, some additional tools and functions.

Maxqda training workshop

Advanced workshop

It is possible to add a half-day (or full day) of further training, to explore the most useful functionalities for your research project, to work on project planning and design, and on integration of other methods and tools.

Consulting and research activities

Beyond the training workshops, consultation and tutoring sessions are also possible, either to plan a research project and its method together, or for your future projects.

I also offer my services as an independent researcher, in case you would like me to be involved in the long-term realization and implementation of a project.

Online training and in-person workshops

Many options are possible for online training: you can contact me to discuss which options are the most relevant for your group and your project.

In person workshops are mainly held in Quebec and New Brunswick, but can also be held elsewhere in Eastern Canada, the Northeastern United States, and Europe (to be discussed).


"Terre des hommes is a Swiss humanitarian organisation working in 34 countries to promote children's rights. We adopted MAXQDA to help improve the quality and efficiency of our studies and evaluations in the field.  Amélie supported us in the training of our multinational staff and perfectly adapted her teaching to our needs and constraints.  We don't operate in an academic setting, but in a very specific operational one, and Amélie demonstrated great flexibility and an ability to understand the constraints typical of the humanitarian world, taking into account our institutional framework, our procedures and our working methods, understanding our questions and helping us to produce high-quality work within the limits inherent to our context.  She provided us with invaluable advice, and with relevant and considerate technical support, which enabled us to initiate the deployment of MAXQDA at organisational level.  We really appreciated the pedagogical quality of her content, and thanks to Amélie we gained the confidence and motivation we needed to initiate the deployment of a tool at global level."

"If Amélie has one quality, it is her ability to listen to everyone's needs. So well that when you are part of a group of student researchers with individual needs, she has that comforting adaptability that frees up speech and invites timely accuracy. People who really know how to listen are so rare ... For example, when it comes to the use of the MAXQDA tool (of which she has a very operational knowledge), there is not a single piece of advice that is the same as another, for she takes into consideration the methodological design of each participant. You can thus take full advantage of the precise answers given to your own needs as well as those of others. And finally, Amélie knows how to be available with a great reactivity. And for a PhD student who is always in a hurry, this is a real godsend!" [Review of an online group training and of individual tutoring sessions]
