Introduction to NVivo

In this course you will be introduced to NVivo, a software program used for qualitative research methods such as grounded theory (GT), content analysis, phenomenology, discourse analysis, literature reviews, and more. NVivo facilitates your research process, specifically, it makes it easier for you to organize and sort rich text research data.

Course description and content

You will learn how to use NVivo effectively for different research methods. We will show and explain NVivo’s structure, basic functions and the terminology used in the software. We are also going to touch upon various tools to facilitate the iterative process for coding data in transcribed individual interviews and focus groups as well as open-ended survey responses.

The course consist of two sessions. During the second session, we will introduce more advanced functions mixed with hands-on exercises, and a QA session based on participants questions.
