NVivo: A Powerful Tool to Address Your Research Questions

Guest Speaker: Dr. Paula Hodgson

This workshop will cover the key concepts on using NVivo for qualitative research. Starting with research questions, participants will gain ideas from making coding to reading abstracts to extending coding in journal articles as an illustration. Alternatively, researchers can make coding based on the conceptual framework that they are working on.

Through coding with categories/themes, you may learn to create queries to make initial visualization and analysis from a mix of interviews and survey results. You will learn the process of coding while building an understanding of how evidence can be gathered from the cycle to confirm the existing conceptual framework or build a new model for further analysis.

The demonstration will be conducted with the latest version in Windows.

Remarks:

  • Interested participants are required to have your own notebooks/laptops installed with the new NVivo before attending the workshop.
  • For those using previous versions of NVivo, please note that the software interface of the new version is not the same as yours. (The trial version of NVivo only lasted for 14 days.)

Date and Time: 24 Feb 2022 (Thu) 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 noon
Venue: Digital Scholarship Lab, G/F, University Library
Medium of Instruction:  English

Author Identifiers: Making Yourself Distinguishable

An author ID is to distinguish yourself accurately in the research community from others with similar names so that your scholarly publications can be easily recognized.

This workshop will demonstrate:

  • What are ORCID, Publon, Scopus Author Profile, and Google Scholar Profile
  • How to record your research activities such as your publications and presentations in these systems
  • How to transfer information from these systems to AIMS

Date and Time: 10 Mar (Thu) 4:00 p.m. – 4:45 p.m.
Venue: User Education Room 2, G/F, University Library  
Medium of Instruction: Cantonese (English will be used if users require.)

NVivo: Strategies to Advance Qualitative Data Analysis

Guest Speaker: Dr. Paula Hodgson

With the latest version of NVivo, the advanced workshop will use research examples to illustrate features and functionalities to allow researchers to use an inductive or deductive approach to sources of data when analysing qualitative data. Coding allows us to formulate a framework or identify sources of evidence with respect to the approaches used. Categories emerge when individual coding is clustered into levels of sub-themes. To address research questions, researchers can further explore relationships between or within cases. The queries function in NVivo allows researchers to retrieve matrix results easily. In addition, NVivo also offers an alternative approach to textual script analysis that provides fresh scope from the sea of data such that this can provide an enlightened scope in addition to existing theories.

The demonstration will be conducted with the latest version in Windows.

Remarks:

  • Participants must have experience in using NVivo. No demonstration on basic steps on uploading files to NVivo, coding and organization of coding in the workshop.
  • Interested participants are advised to have your own notebooks/laptops with new NVivo installed before attending the workshop. (The trial version of NVivo only lasted for 14 days.)
  • For those using previous versions of NVivo, please note that the software interface of the new version is not the same as yours.
  • Participants are encouraged to use your own qualitative research project data to practise the steps including setting cases and comparison of cases in the session..
  • Priority of registration will be given to staff and postgraduates who have already attended the workshop on “NVivo: A Powerful Tool to Address Your Research Questions".

Date and Time: 22 Mar 2022 (Tue) 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 noon
Venue: Digital Scholarship Lab, G/F, University Library

Using ATLAS.ti for Qualitative Data Analysis

This workshop will introduce how to use ATLAS.ti to conduct qualitative data analysis. Participants will learn how to use ATLAS.ti to conduct:

  • Data description, such as creating codes, coding, using memo, and writing comments on your data
  • Data analysis and interpretation such as using the functions of hyperlink, network view, query tool, and co-occurrence to explore patterns

 

Date and Time: 29 Mar 2022 (Tue) 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
