This workshop will cover the basics of how to get started using NVivo for qualitative data analysis. The workshop is designed for new users of NVivo who have little or no experience with the software. This hands-on session will focus on bringing data into NVivo, organizing it, and beginning to code.

Accessing the software for your personal computer: Unfortunately, we are not able to offer use of ISSR laptops while teaching the workshop remotely this semester. Participants will be using their own computers at home, so everyone will need to have NVivo 12 installed prior to the workshop. NVivo is available for download through institutional license for graduate students and faculty in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences (this access is administered by ISSR; request a license at this link). Similar access may be available through your own college or department; check this out as soon as you register so that you’re sure to have access to the software for the workshop.  If you can’t get access through those channels, there is a 14-day free trial available for Mac and PC: Just be sure not to download your trial more than 13 days ahead of the workshop date! 

What is NVivo? NVivo is a qualitative data management software that offers a platform to organize, analyze, and parse through large amounts of qualitative data of all kinds—from interview recordings and field notes to video and images. Want to learn more about what the software can do? Visit The QSR International web page.
