Course Description

Save time and frustration learning NVivo 11 for Windows. This course will teach you what you need to know (not all of the functions in NVivo) in order to setup and start coding your project. You will have the opportunity to work hands-on with sample data using both deductive (top-down) and inductive (bottom-up, what is emerging from the data) coding approaches. This course is intended for doctoral students, faculty, and researchers working on text-based data (e.g. interviews, focus groups, and open-ended responses) only.

In this course you will:

•Comprehend the Benefits and Uses of NVivo

•Setup and Organize Data in NVivo

•Create folders

•Import data

•Learn How and What to Code in NVivo

•Inductive approach (plus a hands-on exercise)

•Deductive approach (plus a hands-on exercise)

•Coding memo

•Preform Coding Consensus

•Save and Backup an NVivo project

Founder and CEO

Asher Beckwitt, Ph.D.

I started Asher Consulting, LLC because I value research and the knowledge it has to offer if it is done correctly. Research explores and seeks to gain insight into the consciousness and socialization that makes us human. By understanding what makes us human, we can utilize our results to connect with other people, improve people’s quality of life, enhance our communities, and gain insight into our own and others cultures and cultural practices. My goal is to equip researchers with the knowledge and skills they need to investigate and improve humanity. I have had the fortunate opportunity to work with over 5000 doctoral candidates, faculty, and researchers over the past 16 years. In addition, I have provided NVivo training to several thousand doctoral candidates, faculty, and researchers nationally and internationally over the past 16 years. I am also a listed NVivo trainer for QSR International.By focusing on people’s motivations, behaviors, experiences, thoughts, attitudes, and/or beliefs, we gain meaningful insights into the essence of the human experience. I feel it is important to use these insights to better programs, policies, products, or services to meet people’s and/or communities needs.
