Workshop: Introduction to Qualitative Data Analysis Using NVivo (beginner level)

January 17, 1:00-3:00 PM


The Hot Source! project, funded by AHRC, is organizing an online workshop on January 17, 2024, as part of its training activities from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm. 

This workshop is designed for researchers who are new to NVivo or those who want to reinforce their skills in using the software. Participants will gain an overview of NVivo, including its features and capabilities.  

NVivo is a software tool often used for qualitative data analysis. Qualitative data in the humanities can include a wide range of materials such as interviews, surveys, articles, audio/video recordings, and textual documents. NVivo is designed to help researchers organize, analyze, and gain insights from this qualitative data. 

The workshop will cover the process of setting up a project in NVivo, including creating a new project, importing data, and organizing files. The attendees will learn how to effectively code in NVivo, understand the concept of coding, create and apply codes, and manage coding structures.  

Advanced coding techniques, including the use of coding queries, auto coding, and coding comparison in NVivo will be covered. Additional techniques for exploring and analysing textual data in NVivo, such as word frequency analysis and text search queries will be covered as well.  

No previous knowledge of NVivo is required.  However, participants who wish to further develop their skills in using NVivo software for textual data can also consider attending the workshop on Web Scraping using NVivo

In addition to this workshop, participants can register for a 1:1 ‘Practical Surgery’ session on 31st January.
