'Introduction to NVivo 10' webinar training Sept. 20

By Shalin Hai-Jew

The first of a series of trainings on NVivo, a qualitative and mixed methods data analysis tool, will be held from 2-4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20, at 301 Hale Library. The presenter is Cynthia Jacobs of QSR International.

This interactive presentation will introduce attendees to setting up a project in NVivo and then using the tool to explore the data. More specifically, this will cover the NVivo workspace; how to create a project; how to import documents — including importation of data through NCapture; how to create memos and annotations; how to identify themes in the data; how to set up data "nodes"; how to apply text analysis tools; and other capabilities — such as using survey data.

Those who want to participate from their own computers may register online. Once they have registered, they will receive an email with a link that they may use to join this K-State session.

Please plan to attend online or in person, and feel free to bring questions. 301 Hale will be open from 1:30-4:30 p.m. for this event to allow people to settle in with their laptops and to meet with fellow qualitative and mixed methods researchers.

Additional training sessions will be offered online by QSR International. In-person sessions may be attended in 301 Hale Library from 2-4 p.m. on the following Friday afternoons.

  • Importing and Coding Documents and File Management on Oct. 18
  • Using NVivo for Mixed Methods Research — including Demographic Data on Nov. 15
  • Using NVivo for Survey Data — including Social Media Data Extraction and Analysis on Dec. 13

Note: There will be a training on the new Mac version of NVivo — scheduled for release in late 2013 — from 2-3 p.m. Jan. 24, 2014, in 301 Hale.
