NVivo Workshop Materials

NVivo is software that supports qualitative and mixed methods research. This workshop will start with an in-depth introduction to capabilities of the software including navigating the overall interface; running visualizations and queries, and incorporating categorical data. Following this demonstration, workshop participants will be guided through the steps for creating a project, importing sources, and coding. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own data to get guidance on how to construct their database and explore their research questions.
