About the workshop

This in-person workshop will introduce you to the principles, functionality, and application of NVivo in the context of real-life qualitative research projects, illustrating how it can be used throughout the research process; from research design and literature review, through data analysis, visualisation and write-up. Using a combination of demonstration, discussion, and hands-on practice you will use both sample data and have the opportunity to work with your own data to learn how to get the best from it.

Please note that all the places on this workshop are strictly reserved for UWE PhD, Professional Doctorate, DPhil or MPhil students.

About the facilitators

This workshop is facilitated in-person by Dr Christina Silver or Dr Sarah Bulloch (University of Surrey and QDA Services) both experienced researchers and users of various computer-assisted qualitative data analysis software packages.

The workshop draws on the principles of two text books co-authored by Christina Silver: Using Software in Qualitative Research: A Step-by-Step Guide (Sage Publications, 2nd Edition 2014) and Qualitative Analysis Using NVivo: The Five-Level QDA Method (Routledge, 2017), both of which are available as e-books from the UWE Bristol library.

For more information about NVivo see the NVivo review available from the CAQDAS Networking Project and visit the NVivo website.
