Researcher workshops (Sept – Nov 2021)

Date: 
19/08/2021 to 30/11/2021

The researcher workshops are designed to assist CUHK researchers in managing the AIMS publication module, evaluating research impact, and conducting qualitative data analysis.

 

Program 1: AIMS and Research Portal

Research Output Management with AIMS 

The Academic Information Management System (AIMS) is the system for CUHK researchers to manage and deposit the full text of their research outputs. This workshop will demonstrate:

•    Key features of AIMS and its public interface Research Portal
•    How to input your publication records into AIMS 
•    How to deposit the full texts and related the copyright issues 

CUHK researchers, administrative staff, and research postgraduates who need to input publication records into AIMS are all welcome to join.

Program 3: NVivo

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.

Date and Time: 17 Nov 2021 (Wed) 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. 
Venue: Digital Scholarship Lab, G/F, University Library
Medium of Instruction:  English

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. 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".
