Workshops

The Research Commons offers webinars and in-person workshops on the use of NVivo. These are open to all SFU NVivo users or potential users and require registration.

NVivo Project Time - open laptop lab for qualitative data analysis

Set aside a few hours in your schedule to devote to advancing your work in NVivo. Bring in your project and work away in the company of other NVivo users. During this unstructured time, an NVivo facilitator will be on hand to answer your questions and help you move through any sticking points.  Whether you're just getting started or are quite far along, this is your time. We’ll put on the kettle for tea and coffee, so bring your own mug.

This is a Bring Your Own Laptop session and is suitable for both Mac and Windows users. 

Please sign up so we know you're joining us.

Making Literature Reviews a Breeze (almost) with NVivo for Mac

This interactive workshop introduces importing and coding of literature review materials and key tools that can be particularly helpful when reviewing literature in your area of research.

Topics covered include: introducing NVivo and setting up a project working with your information identifying themes, topics and ideas and collecting data to support them using tools such as text search query, matrix coding query, and Framework Matrix.

What will you achieve from this course? At the end of this, you will have the knowledge to set up a literature review in NVivo, and begin to work with your information. You will also be able to use NVivo to organize your content and begin to identify themes, topics or ideas.

It is appropriate for those who have had some experience with NVivo or who have taken the Nuts and Bolts of NVivo workshop. For more information about NVivo at SFU, please visit NVivo Software for Research Analysis.

Participants should also have some familiarity with citation management software (Zotero, Mendeley, Refworks, EndNote, etc).

Note: You will need to bring your own Mac laptop, loaded with the latest version of NVivo for Mac.

Custom training

If you would like to request that one of the Graduate Peer NVivo Facilitators deliver a custom training session to your research group, methodology class, or other group of NVivo users, please contact nvivo-rc@sfu.ca to discuss the possibility.  We prioritize custom or course-embedded training for graduate classes and research groups. We may have some limited capacity to accommodate requests for training for undergraduate classes.

Training from QSR

QSR, the parent company of NVivo, periodically offers free online eSeminars, during which researchers or practitioners discuss how they have used NVivo to support their project. QSR offers additional online workshops for a fee. Please note the time zone when registering for any of these. 

Consultations

Graduate Peer NVivo Facilitators are available to assist faculty, graduate students, and research group members by email (nvivo-rc@sfu.ca) or in one-on-one consultations. We may have some limited capacity to assist undergraduate students. The  facilitators are experienced NVivo users and skilled at assisting users with technology. They can introduce NVivo, discuss potential workflows, answer questions, and demonstrate features and techniques.

To schedule a meeting with one of our facilitators, please use the request form on the Research Commons Consultations page.
