Advanced Nvivo 9.2 courses

  • OBIS has organised four half day sessions for staff and research student Nvivo users who would like to receive support from an experienced Nvivo consultant and trainer focusing on their own research data and Nvivo project. Each session can have a maximum of six people.

    You would bring your own research data and/or Nvivo 9.x project to the session and the trainer would advise and guide each attendee individually in using Nvivo to maximum effect. There would be the opportunity to ask questions specific to your own research; these may include (but would not be limited to) setting up a project, project collaboration with co-researchers, merging projects, working with datasets, automated coding tasks, text analysis, multimedia coding of text, images, audio and video. There could be brief coverage of new features in Nvivo 10, such as social media data capture, if relevant.

    You should be familiar with some of the basic functions of Nvivo, such as importing data, coding and running simple queries (ie. basic functions covered on the Introductory Nvivo course).

    The first session takes place on Wednesday 20th June and is now full, but the following sessions have spaces:

    • Wednesday 11 July 2012
    • Wednesday 01 August 2012
    • Wednesday 08 August 2012

    Whether sessions takes place in the morning or the afternoon depends on the optimal allocation of places to respondents, so please indicate any sessions that you could possibly attend. It is important that the consultant knows what your research is about and what data you are handling. For this reason, please would you also use the 'Add a Comment' feature at the bottom of that page to describe in a few words your level of experience of Nvivo, your research area and type of data you propose bringing to the session.

    In about a week or 10 days, after people have had a chance to register their availability, I will allocate people to sessions and confirm their place accordingly. There is a charge of £15 which represents only a small proportion of the actual cost of the session.
