    Summary Description

    This two day workshop provides a comprehensive overview of NVivo and an opportunity for participants to practice tasks using their own data. The focus is on gaining confidence in setting up a project efficiently, managing and organising data, exploring and conceptualising data and interrogating and visualising data.

    The course combines discussion, demonstration and hands-on work, including:

    * Contextual discussions – developmental, methodological and analytical principles

    * Software Overview –interface, architecture, tools

    * Analytic Planning – ensuring analytic strategies drive the appropriate use of software tools

    * Guided Instruction – step-by-step teaching in the operation of NVivo and the use of tools for analytic tasks

    * Individual Support – time for participants to discuss their projects with the Tutor

    During the first day sample data are used in order to become familiar with tools, and the whole group follows common tasks together and practices exercises individually. Work is structured to provide step-by-step support.

    During the second day participants set up their own NVivo project and work with their own project materials. The first part of the day focusses on translating the tasks covered in day one into practice.

    Individuals and teams work independently, with support from the tutor. The remainder of the day focuses on experimenting with more sophisticated uses of tools. Possibilities and implications are discussed, demonstrated and practiced.

    Participants are encouraged to bring their own research materials to work with (this could include transcribed primary data, literature files, reports pertinent to the project, etc.), although sample materials can also be provided.

    Please note: 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.
