Short course outline This course is designed for participants who plan NVivo for the management, coding, analysis and visualisation of qualitative data. The course’s content is spread over four modules and includes: formatting text data and downloading internet data, setting up a project and organising data in NVivo; coding and analysing data; seeking patterns and identifying relationships, and presenting findings using graphic displays. The course is entirely hands-on and uses sample data to learn NVivo’s basics and advanced options. This course does not cover how to analyse qualitative data in NVivo based on specific methods such as thematic analysis, grounded theory, or content analysis. If you are looking for such course, see the outline of the course Advanced Qualitative Data Analysis of the next ECPR Winter School in Bamberg in February 2016.
