Summer Methodology Workshops | Organizing and Analyzing Qualitative Data with NVivo 12 for Windows | Eric Griffith

Tuesday, July 9, 2019 - 9:00am to 1:00pm
Wednesday, July 10, 2019 - 9:00am to 1:00pm

Description: This three-morning workshop will get you up and running with coding and analyzing your qualitative data in NVivo 12.

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.

Each day, we'll also offer optional open lab times when the instructor will be available to help you apply the techniques you learned in the morning to your own data.

*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 instructor for more information.
