QUESTS will host NVivo training workshops on Thursday 01 and Friday 02 March 2018. The workshops will be facilitated by Ben Meehan, QDA Training.

 

Thurs 1 March 2018: Day 1-Introduction to NVivo: building your qualitative database, One-day course 9:00-16:30
The balance of day 1 (building your database) is conceptual and covers many planning decisions associated with gathering, importing and coding your qualitative data in a database environment. There is a practical element to the day. By the end of the workshop participants will understand the advantages and limitations of using a computer for qualitative data analyses and will know how to set-up a database, how to import data and how to code data. They will also understand the potential of NVivo as a tool for organising, questioning and reporting on their data so that they can truly support and defend their findings.

The objective of the course is to equip the group with enough knowledge to enable people to begin their project using a computer-aided methodology. However, they will not possess the requisite skills to carry out more advanced tasks. An intermediate level training day (Day 2) would achieve that end.

 

Fri 2 March 2018: Day 2-NVivo underway: analysing your data, One-day course 9:00-16:30
YOU SHOULD ONLY ENROL ON THIS ONE-DAY COURSE IF YOU HAVE ALREADY COMPLETED THE DAY 1 INTRODUCTION TO NVIVO COURSE PREVIOUSLY
The objective of this workshop is to conduct a piece of analysis using raw data and a research question. By the end of the session, the participants will have:
1. Set up a database with a robust architecture
2. Analysed the data using queries and manual analysis where appropriate
3. Reported on the findings

Finally, there will be an open session at the end of the workshop to facilitate people who wish to work with their own data which will also provide the opportunity for a question and answer dialogue where all parties to the workshop can learn from each other.

 

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
