Book a consultation

Graduate Peer NVivo Facilitators are available to assist faculty, graduate students, and research group members by email ( 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 Consultation Request form.


Library workshops

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

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, class, or other group of NVivo users, please contact to discuss the possibility.  We prioritize custom or course-embedded training for graduate classes and research groups. We may have limited capacity to accommodate requests for training for undergraduate classes.

Training from QSR

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

Past webinars and training are available on QSR's NVivo YouTube channel.
