Tea and coffee is available at registration and at various points during the day, but lunch is NOT provided.

During semester, it is advisable for delegates to bring their own lunch, as the restaurants and coffee shops are extremely busy.
This workshop is flexibly structured to deal with common challenges of NVivo 11. This workshop is for researchers who have previously attended an introductory training workshop in NVivo and/or who have been using the software for a real project for some time. It is not an introductory workshop, but designed as a refresher to help researchers get going with their own data or to move on beyond the basic tasks, for those who have already started working with the software.
This is an NVivo 11 for Windows course. Participants using the Mac version are welcome to attend but the main part of the course will cover the functions available for the Windows version, which are not all the same for the Mac version.
The day will comprise discussion, demonstration and hands-on work and combine group and individual work. We will provide reminders of early tasks to structure work efficiently and cover the more sophisticated tools and tasks as required. Participants may bring data and/or copies of their own software projects to work with during the day and there will be an opportunity for each participant to talk with Tutors about their own work. Participants will be asked ahead of time for information about their progress with software and the aspects for which they require support such that the workshop can be tailored specifically for those attending. The workshop is accompanied by relevant documentation, some of which will be provided ahead of time.
See below for what you should bring to the workshop if possible.
Minimum recommendations for NVivo 11 experience ahead of the workshop.
You will each arrive having worked with NVivo 11 at different levels. However, this workshop is nor a repeat of the Introductory course, so we do make some assumptions about your basic knowledge about and familiarity with NVivo. We would expect that everyone attending this follow-up workshop has the following experience with the software, as a minimum (most will have done a lot more):
- That you have created a project, used folders in, for example, Sources and Nodes to create a basic framework for your project;
- That you are familiar with navigating around the software using the main menu ribbons, the Navigation bar down the left of the screen, and through the right mouse click menus;
- That you have experimented with importing data (although you may have some questions about the specifics of working with certain types of data, e.g. survey data, visual data, etc.);
- That you have done at least some early coding work using Nodes.
If you have not got experience with at least these areas you need to contact Christina before the workshop to discuss the appropriateness of your attending at this time. email@example.com
What you should bring with you:
- An NVivo project, in version 11 format (let us know if you have been working on an earlier version of NVivo).... on a memory stick or a laptop (laptop must have NVivo installed and in working order if you want to work on it during the day).....Do NOT use CD Roms to move an NVivo project around.
- Or/And a number of Word files, transcripts or documents which are sufficient to allow you to experiment in a meaningful way.
