Description: This three-morning workshop will get you up and running with coding and analyzing your qualitative data in NVivo 11. The first day will focus on the basics: importing, organizing, and beginning to code your data (text documents, surveys, web pages, videos and audio). The second day will focus on structuring your project and linking additional data (e.g. demographic information) to your project items. The third day, we'll introduce ways to explore your data with queries and other analysis tools.  Each day, we'll also offer optional open lab times when the instructors will be available to help you apply the techniques you learned in the morning to your own data. This is a great opportunity to solidify your learning and get hands-on help with your project.  If you'd like a quick overview of what NVivo is, you can watch the "Introducing NVivo" video on the QSR webpage: http://qsrinternational.com/products_nvivo.aspx

*This course will be taught in the Windows version of NVivo. Although the Mac version of NVivo has similar (albeit somewhat more limited) functionality, the interface is sufficiently different to make a dual-platform workshop unfeasible. If you are a Mac user, you are welcome to take the course using an ISSR Windows-based laptop and bring your own Mac to follow along on your own. Please contact the instructors for more information.
