NVivo Part 1: (PC or MAC) - Getting Started with NVivo - 10:00am



Workshop Instructors:
Amir and David

Workshop Description:
NVivo is a computer-assisted qualitative data analysis software. In this introductory workshop, you will learn about the benefits of working with NVivo, how to set it up, the types of sources you can use and how to import them into NVivo. You will also learn how to do queries, nodes, and coding.

NVivo is available for free for all UBC students. Download NVivo here.

This workshop takes place in a PC computer lab. All of the machines have NVivo installed. If you are a MAC user, you must bring your own laptop with NVivo already installed. If you are a PC user who would prefer to bring your own laptop with NVivo already installed, that is fine too.

Literature Reviews: Writing - 10:00am

Thesis and research article literature reviews accomplish several purposes for scholars. In the introduction, for example, writers review relevant research in order to establish a research gap or knowledge deficit that the current study addresses. But how do writers summarize the scholarly conversation already underway and, then, join that conversation?

This workshop introduces researchers to the typical structure of the literature review in thesis and article introductions, while accounting for variation in communicative purposes and disciplinary differences. Participants will write or revise a literature review (thesis, dissertation, research article), and receive feedback from the workshop facilitators and other participants. Therefore, this workshop is most useful for those with a research project underway.
