28-29 Aug 2013 - NVivo 10 at Liverpool, Merseyside, UK.
Overview of the two-day Introduction to NVivo 10 Training
All researchers, academics, research assistants, service staff, and students who are collecting qualitative data involving: documents, photos, audio, video, spreadsheets, databases, literature reviews, bibliographic references, social media content (twitter, linnkedIn, facebook), and Evernode files, and are aiming to qualitatively analyse the data using any methodology; including mixing qualitative and quantitative data.
Aim of the Course
- Explore NVivo 10 software using a sample project
Set up a New Project
- Create a folder structure to store your documents – internal, external, memos and a project journal.
- Create Node folders to store your thematic coding framework(s), case nodes, and auto-coding nodes.
- Import your project sources - documents, transcripts, videos, audio files, photos, twitter, web pages, Evernotes, pdfs, databases, spreadsheets and bibliographic data.
- Explore how to transcribe audio and video files in NVivo.
- Examine how by using using heading styles, you can quickly and conveniently auto-code responses of your transcripts by questions, topics and speakers. This is particularly useful when working with focus group transcripts.
- Classify your sources and nodes.
- Store your reflections, ideas and field notes as memos, annotations, See Also links, and hyperlinks.
- Link thoughts or anchor key phrases and words within transcripts to to build associations and gain clarity of the text. This enhances your coding.
- Code references from sources into the thematic coding framework nodes and or free or emergent nodes for later re-housing into the thematic framework nodes.
- Explore how to code video and audio media, without the use of full transcript, directly in NVivo.
- Sort, merge, relocate, organise, rename and restructure your thematic nodes.
- Examine and ‘weed out’ or validate the collection of references gathered into the thematic nodes.
- Code-on further from your existing nodes (themes), for in-depth analysis.
- Filter your data by creating a collection of search folders to explore your research questions.
- Create queries to excavate in-depth meaning; explore patterns and relationships in the data.
- Create models to display patterns and relationships; and to summarise your current understanding of the project.
- Export your models to PowerPoint to present your findings.
- Visualise your project in charts, tree maps and cluster analysis diagrams.
- Create framework matrices to summarise your data.
- Surmmarise your coding references automatically into framework matrices.
- Produce various administrative reports of your project items.
- Learn how to setup a project involving a number of researchers or coders from different geographical locations, working on the same project.
Your tutor will require you to set-up your own project. You will be given time to receive feedback on your node structure, coding, classifications, models, graphs and queries. Your node system will be thoroughly examined for efficiency, to ensure that the structure will support in-depth data analyses.
We only take maximum class size of 9 to ensure that high quality and responsive learning support is given to each participant on this course. Please email to check if there are places on the course.
