Researchers and analysts commonly use qualitative data analysis software (QDAS) tools in academia, healthcare, government, and marketing. QDAS tools organize, analyze and visualize unstructured data. In many cases, these data are text-based, however, most QDAS tools can integrate and interrogate other data types such as images, audio, video, surveys, and PDFs. In some cases, QDAS tools incorporate templates for streamlining accepted, established data analysis techniques for users (e.g., content analysis, framework analysis, social network analysis, etc.) The industry leading QDAS software is NVivo 12, and while other QDAS tools exist (e.g., Dedoose, MaxQDAS, Atlas.ti, etc.), many qualitative researchers accept that NVivo offers the widest variety of organizational and analytic functions. Dr. Allan McDougall, a full-time qualitative researcher with the Canadian Medical Protective Association, is a NVivo Certified Expert with nearly 10 years’ experience using the tool and training users. This session will provide an overview for how NVivo 12 can be used to facilitate mixed methods research. A practical workshop on leveraging some of NVivo’s most useful features will also be provided. PC and Mac versions of NVivo will be appropriate for this session (older versions of NVivo too!).
At the end of this session, participants will:
- Understand how NVivo can be used to draw insights from mixed methods datasets (e.g., surveys)
- Import, code, and analyze mixed methods data with NVivo
- Appreciate some of NVivo’s basic and more advanced functionality
This is an interactive workshop. To get as much as possible out of the workshop, participants are asked to bring laptops with them. If you do not already have NVivo 12 on your laptop, please download the free 2-week trial version of NVivo 12 prior to the workshop. The trial version can be found here: https://www.qsrinternational.com/nvivo/trial|
