Dr. Normand Peladeau, President of Provalis Research, was the featured speaker at this semester's third installation of COTELCO’s Brown Bag Series (#BBSeries) on Tuesday, 18 September 2012 from 12:00pm – 1:30pm EST.
Dr. Peladeau, the man behind the Provalis Research Suite, provided COTELCO research associates and students at American University and Syracuse University (SU) who have interest in quantitative and qualitative research with an overview of the research suite, as well as a review of new software features.
The Provalis Research Suite, which includes the analysis software programs QDA Minor 4, WordStat 6, SimStat 2, is used in several COTELCO projects including the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) and the Public Diplomacy Project. The software packages focus on mixed methods qualitative analysis, content analysis and text mining, and statistical analysis, respectively.
Tuesday’s Brown Bag also welcomed the students of SU’s Doctor of Professional Studies in Information Management (DPS-IM) program, who are currently participating in the fall 2012 DPS-IM residency. The Provalis Research Suite will be extremely useful to the students as they prepare to conduct their doctoral research this semester.
