This is a comprehensive and professional NVivo Pro shortcourse for qualitative researchers provided face-to-face and on campus at the University of Melbourne.
NVivo Pro is a powerful program that offers a set of advanced coding tools for qualitative data analysis.
This NVivo shortcourse is best taken when you have your data and are ready to code it, but there are practical exercises and a comprehensive handbook is provided.
The introduction and advanced courses will take you through the full range of what you need to know to make the most of your data. If your chosen session books out, please join the waiting list.
Do I need to bring anything?
There’s no need to bring your own data as a training set will be provided. The course is taught in a computer lab so a PC computer will be provided.
The introductory course is 4-hours long and covers setting up a project, importing and coding.
If you want to know more, make sure you enrol in the 2-hour advanced course, which is a further extension that will help you classify, model, and report findings in an expert way while offering new ways to explore your data.
NVivo for PC is similar to Mac, so the outcomes will be similar. You can bring a Mac laptop if you wish.
Before you attend
You will need a valid unimelb staff or student log-in to attend this course. You should have begun or finished collecting your data and be familiar with the basic concepts of qualitative data.
