Introduction to NVivo

January 12th, 2024

12:30 p.m. - 1:50 p.m. (EST)


Dr. Jacob Obodai

Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Edge Hill University

Prof. Jo Crotty

Professor of Management and Director of Research and Knowledge Exchange, Edge Hill University

This  practical NVivo workshop will be an extension of the previous session  on inductive and deductive approaches to qualitative research and  analysis.

In this workshop, Professor Jo Crotty and Dr. Jacob Obodai  will introduce participants to the NVivo application, equipping them  with skills needed to effectively work with qualitative data.  Participants will have the opportunity to explore NVivo, import and  organise data, conduct coding and perform qualitative data analysis.


During this workshop, we will cover various aspects of NVivo including:

  • Essential tips, short-cuts, and menu navigation

  • Files/File Classifications

  • Cases/Case Classifications

  • Coding

  • Queries

  • Visualisation

  • Reports and extracts

Audience and Prerequisites

This workshop is designed for individuals seeking a hands-on introduction to NVivo for data analysis. Participation in the inductive and deductive approaches to qualitative research and analysis workshop delivered by Professor Crotty and Dr. Obodai is highly recommended but  not mandatory. New and those familiar with qualitative research  methodologies are welcome.

For participants without institutional or personal licenses for NVivo, a 14-day free trial version can be downloaded from the vendors website (NVivo 14-day Free Trial link) for use during the workshop. Participants should kindly note that the trial period begins when you launch the software and follow the on-screen prompts to activate it. To make the most of the trial, we recommend installing the software in advance but postponing activation until participants are ready to use it. Participants are also to note that the trial version can only be used once on a computer, so they should plan their usage accordingly.

Through this workshop, participants will gain hands-on experience with the NVivo application, enabling them to confidently import, code, and analyse qualitative data using this powerful tool. Join us on this journey to unlock the full potential of NVivo for your research and analysis needs.
