What comes to mind when you hear the term network? The Internet? Facebook? Multiple computers sharing information?

There was a whole realm of scholarship where researchers explore the patterns of interaction in and among networks in their many forms. Network Analysis is a research method that scholars in various disciplines use to explore and visualize relationships between objects, entities, or people.

In this workshop, we will take an introductory look at this concept and the basic underlying components of the method as well as discuss some ways that researchers are currently using the method. We will also identify types of online tools and software, discuss how to choose the best option, and construct a basic data set in MS Excel. Finally, time permitting, we will have a short demo of a network analysis visualization tool.

This is a basic introduction, no prior experience is necessary. Attendees may wish to bring a laptop to follow along.
