Workshop 3: CAQDAS - NVivo 9 for Intermediate (Dr. Suria Baba)

Workshop Agenda

This hands-on workshop is a basic introduction to NVivo 9. It will provide you with the
information and practice you need to get started with your own project. Using sample data,
you’ll create a project in NVivo and will work with a range of material like documents, audio,
video, pictures, spreadsheets and database tables. On the second session, we will go beyond
the basics to asking questions of your data and your analysis, using grouping tools, text analysis,
queries, and visualizations. You will also get a chance to practice what you’ve learned with your
own data. Here’s an outline of the course:
