Fundamentals of NVivo for Windows

Trainer: Sue Bullen

Overview

This hands-on workshop is a basic introduction to NVivo 12. The objective is to provide you with the information and practice you need to get started with your own project.

Using sample data provided to you on a USB, you'll create a project in NVivo and will work with textual data (Word and PDF files).  You will be introduced to some basic text analysis queries and some visualisations.  Time is allocated in the afternoon session to individually discuss your own project with the trainer.

What’s covered?

  • Introductions with a brief discussion of each participant’s project.
  • A ‘big picture’ tour of NVivo, using a sample project.
  • Creating a new project. Understanding the NVivo Workspace and file structure.
  • Importing Word documents and PDF files. Reading and reflecting with annotations and memos. Making some connections via See Also Links.
  • Creating and defining codes. Coding, viewing coding, uncoding, moving and merging codes. Coding on. Understanding the power of an efficient coding structure.
  • Classifications, attributes (variables), values, cases. Importing classification sheets.
  • Word frequency and text search queries.

You will be required to bring your own laptop with NVivo 12 installed and functioning correctly. For information see the NVivo Software webpage. If any participant is using NVivo for Mac, you are welcome to bring your own Mac to the workshop but it is imperative that NVivo 12 for Mac is installed and functioning.
