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:
Each course is designed around the needs of those attending – identified through a pre-course questionnaire – in order to ensure the support is tailored.
Common topics include:
Dr Christina Silver is the manager of the CAQDAS Networking Project and has been working with and teaching a range of CAQDAS packages, including NVivo, for many years. She is co-author with Ann Lewins of Using software in qualitative research: a step-by-step guide, and The Five-Level QDA method, with Nicholas Woolf.
This workshop assumes participants have an NVivo project in progress and that they will bring it to work with during the day.
Each participant will have worked with NVivo 11 in different ways and at different levels. However, as this workshop is nor a repeat of the Introductory course, we do make some assumptions about your knowledge about and familiarity with NVivo. We would expect that everyone attending this workshop has the following experience with the software, as a minimum (most will have done a lot more):
Please note: if you have not got experience with at least these areas you need to contact Dr Christina Silver before the workshop to discuss the appropriateness of your attending at this time.
