12th Nov 2019 NVivo
As prerequisite to this session you need to go through the 'Getting Started' webinar - to be advised.  This workshop then moves you beyond basic coding with a range of queries to help identify patterns in data. Queries are powerful and assist the researcher to move beyond basic coding to use their classifications to produce visualisations. Reports are also covered. We work with a sample dataset, however you are encouraged to work with your own coded dataset if desired (literature or empirical data). It is OK if you don't have coded data as the workshop gives insight into what is possible when you reach that stage.This workshop is limited to 15 participants and is facilitated by Dr Jenine Beekhuyzen of Adriot Research, please email her with any questions - info@adroitresearch.com.au with the subject line: CSU workshop.
