For anyone looking for advice on how best to design and implement a large-scale project using research software, Christina Silver is outstanding in the field. Her advice on our large and complex research project was methodologically sophisticated, and practical and strategic. Christina’s workshops and consultations were invaluable for developing and implementing our challenging large scale project, and I unreservedly recommend her.

Thank you for a fantastic session. It is one of the best software training sessions I have had the pleasure of attending. It was a lovely interplay of method with technique while keeping the focus and making progress with the software.

We really appreciated your genuine enthusiasm and engagement in our project. You handled our very large and complicated data set quickly and efficiently, delivering an impressive and nuanced coding system in a short space of time. Your advice and prompt and unfazed responses made the process run smoothly.

I really enjoyed the training. We were shown how to make the difference between a very good and an outstanding analysis. I really appreciated your clarity in teaching, diligence towards everyone’s needs in the use of the software, and the structure of the training. Overall, for me it was one of the most interesting and lucrative trainings I have attended.

The training has very much shaped the strategy I will use to conduct my analysis. It helped me focus in a much more systematic way. I feel more confident knowing how to approach the data, and also using the software to help facilitate the analytic process. The training was very enjoyable and what was great was that everything you covered was highly relevant to my needs. Having a small training group was very rewarding and I felt that I had great support throughout.

We have had a working professional relationship with QDAS for almost ten years. Firstly at a “hands on” multi-day tutorial on the use of the software to support qualitative study methodology. The ability to work competently with groups as well as individuals was outstanding. Since then we have maintained a professional consultive relationship through the analysis of two research studies. We applaud their willingness to answer the same questions more than once, to meet you where you’re at in your project, and uncanny talent to tailor advice to particular situations and needs. We have begun data collection for our third study and are quite comfortable knowing that QDAS will be our “go-to” expert to fully utilize qualitative software to support our analysis. As experienced nurse educators, teaching/learning is our core business. We recognize the characteristics of individuals who engage effortlessly in the art of teaching to support active learning. QDAS provides those people.

We have used Christina and her colleagues to facilitate workshops on the use of NVivo with UWE researchers for over 10 years. We keep coming back because it is abundantly clear that she has extensive experience as a qualitative researcher and as a tutor in the use of software packages which our participants consistently report on as being incredibly useful. I have no qualms in recommending Christina to other researcher developers.
