This event replicates ISSR's June 13-15 NVivo for Mac and Windows workshop, in response to overwhelming demand. Seats are limited, we urge interested participants to register early.


This three-evening (12-hour) workshop will get you up and running with coding and analyzing your qualitative data in NVivo 12 for Mac and Windows.

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 analysis -- we will discuss the various types of queries and when to implement them. The third day, we'll discuss linking categorical data (e.g. demographic information) and how to effectively integrate it into your analyses. 

Instructors: Eric Griffith and Erica Kowsz

Eric Griffith Dr. Eric Griffith received his Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, as well as an MA in psychology from Boston University. He completed his dissertation fieldwork in central Mexico, focusing on the experiences of familial caregivers for people living with Alzheimer’s disease. Eric’s research interests include biocultural anthropology, dementia, cognitive aging, health disparities, and mixed methods research. As a postdoctoral fellow with the Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity at Duke University, Eric is working on the NIH-funded project “The influence of religion/spirituality on Alzheimer’s Disease and its related dementias (ADRD) for African Americans."

Erica Kowsz Dr. Erica Kowsz is a teacher and researcher, who loves mentoring students and faculty in research design and data analysis methods. After defending her dissertation in the Department of Anthropology at UMass Amherst in December 2021, she has taken on a new role as Assistant Director for Fellowships at Wesleyan University’s Fries Center for Global Studies, where she also teaches senior undergraduates pursuing the Center's Global Engagement Minor. Her own research combines ethnography, policy and legal analysis, and archival work, so she has extensive experience working with multiple data types within qualitative data analysis software.
