  • ATLAS.ti 8 Introductory Training (2 days)

    6 June 2018

    Summary Description 

    This two day workshop provides a comprehensive overview of ATLAS.ti 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 ATLAS.ti 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 ATLAS.ti 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 ATLAS.ti 8 for Windows course. Participants using version 7 or the Mac version are

    welcome to attend but the main part of the course will cover the functions available for the Windows

    version 8.

  • NVivo 11 Advanced Support Workshop

    15 June 2018
    Summary Description

    This workshop is flexibly structured to discuss common challenges of working with NVivo 11 and aims to enable participants to move on with their analysis. It is designed 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.

    Participants working with any version or edition of NVivo can attend this course.

    The day comprises discussion, demonstration and hands-on sessions and combines group and individual work. We refresh straightforward uses of software tools and cover more sophisticated uses of tools as required.

    Participants bring copies of their own NVivo projects to work with during the day and there will be an opportunity for each participant to talk with the Tutor about their own work.

    Participants are asked ahead of time for information about their progress with NVivo and the aspects for which they require support such that the workshop can be tailored specifically to the needs of those attending. The workshop is accompanied by relevant documentation, some of which will be provided ahead of time.

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

    * 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
