Aim of the Course
This two-day workshop will provide you with a thorough introduction of the main features of NVivo 11/12 Pro for Windows/Mac. You will learn how to setup a new project using a project design outline. Import interview transcripts into the project. Read and capture the flow of ideas using annotations, memos and See Also links. Code data into both Open and Hierarchical codes(themes); classify your subjects based on their demographic attributes; explore and analyse your data using text searches and Word Cloud, Maps, Diagrams and Queries. Learn how to export your findings into Microsoft Word for writing up. You will learn how to work with variety of data sources such as focus group transcripts, PDF files, social media contents (e.g. twitter, Facebook), and Excel spreadsheets. You will learn how to transcribe audio, video, photos in NVivo. You learn how to use NVivo for managing literature review. Upload your collection of PDFs of Journal articles, or upload from Endnote, Refworks, Mendeley, Zotero. You will also be shown how to use framework matrices.
Day 1: Explore NVivo and Build a New NVivo Project
The first day is for the complete beginner or those who have use NVivo a little and wish to start again.
In this section you will learn to:
- Explore how NVivo works through a sample project.
- Create a new project from scratch. Learn to save it, password protect your project, and make backups.
- Import different types of data e.g. documents, pdfs, photos, social media content, into the project.
- Learn to transcribe audio and video files in NVivo.
- You will also explore your data using keywords and phrases; simple and advance queries; and Word Cloud.
- Create memos for field notes, reflective notes, supervision meeting notes, annotations, hyperlinks and See Also Links.
- Code your data into Open Codes, and Hierarchical themes stored in a thematic coding framework folder.
- You will also learn how to conduct literature review using NVivo, so bring some pdfs with you.
Day 2: Further functions in NVivo
The second day is designed as a follow on from day1. You will classify your transcripts and datasets with demographics attributes, explore patterns in your data by using maps, and queries to ask questions and gathers finds for further analysis or for reporting.
In this section you will learn to:
- Create cases of your sources (transcripts and dataset) and classify them by their demographic attributes and values.
- Create relationship types and use to construct relationship nodes to code into.
- Use a number of queries – coding, matrix and group queries to ask questions and gather coded references to answer them.
- Organise your data into sets and search folders to filter your data for asking specific research questions.
- Visualise your data using different maps – Mindmap, Project map, Concept map, Bar chart, etc.
- Export analysed contents into Word for write up.
- Produce various administrative reports of your project items.
- Learn how to setup a group project involving a number of researchers or coders from different geographical locations, working on the same project.
- Learn how to use Framework Matrices methodology.
Your tutor will require you to set-up the structure of your own project. You will be given individual time to receive feedback on your thematic coding structure to ensure that your coding structure will support in-depth data analyses. Your coding technique will be examined for relationship between themes.
The teaching method is mainly hands-on, supported by presentation, demonstration, encourage reflection, discussions, questions and answers, opportunity for tips and insights to be shared, and clinic sessions for advice on your own data.
Recognition for Learning
You will receive a certificate of attendance on completion of the course.
