Introduction to computer-assisted text analysis – handling data with NVivo

For:

School MPhil, EdD, DSW and PhD students at the beginning of their research degree

Days:

Dates:

Time/s:

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday

September 29, 30, October 1

10am–1pm; (with a 15-minute break)

Instructor:

Dr Lina Markauskaite, Senior Lecturer (eResearch), CoCo

Agenda:

Session 1  –  Participants will learn to setup a new project, handle data and annotate texts
Session 2  –  Participants will learn some simple multimodal data coding techniques
Session 3  –  Participants will learn a range of data and method driven text coding techniques

RSVP:

Email Suin Jung by Wednesday, September 24.


Prerequisites

  • Good familiarity with qualitative research methods (Minimum prerequisite is one of: Qualitative Methods (EDPK5001), Qualitative Analysis (EDPK6012) or Adv Qualitative Research Methods (EDPK6001).

  • Advanced (upper intermediate) word processing skills.

Workshop summary

This hands-on workshop aims to provide participants with initial knowledge to start their own NVivo research project and sufficient competences to learn more advanced techniques of computer-assisted text, video, audio and other data analysis independently.

The workshop will cover the core topics of computer-assisted data analysis with NVivo.

Each session will consist of introduction to new techniques mixed with participants’ individual work on their own projects. A set of self-learning resources for follow up learning of new computer-assisted text analysis techniques will be provided.

Data

An exemplary dataset will be provided for demonstrating new techniques. You are expected to bring your own data for individual work.


NVivo follow-up session 1 – cases and queries in qualitative data analysis

Workshop summary

This first follow-up session of Computer-assisted text analysis will focus on case analysis and simple data querying techniques.


NVivo follow-up session 2 – exploring patterns in the qualitative data

For: School MPhil, EdD, DSW and PhD students who are intermediate users of NVivo
Date: Friday, October 3

Facilitator: Dr Lina Markauskaite, Senior Lecturer (eResearch), CoCo
RSVP: Email Suin Jung by Monday, September 29.

Workshop summary

This concluding follow-up session to Computer-assisted text analysis will further explore techniques for creating matrices and exploring patterns in coded textual data. Overall two sessions will cover key aspects of case management and analysis: how to define attributes and work with casebooks; how to create and manage simple and hierarchical cases; how to attach attributes; how to create matrices and explore patterns across the cases.

Participants will explore standard NVivo examples and create their own cases, queries and matrices. You are encouraged to bring your own NVivo project with coded data. The session is designed to support the autonomous learning of intermediate/advanced NVivo users. While participants can come to this class immediately after the introductory NVivo workshop or join this session separately, everyone is encouraged to cover the following self-learning materials independently (ideally before joining the session):
