Researcher Development Programme (RDP): NVIVO for beginners

NVIVO for beginners

Thursday 14 May 2020, 12:00-13:30

Have you thought about using NVIVO for qualitative research? This session will introduce how NVIVO can be used for managing large amounts of data at its most basic level. It will provide an orientation to the basic NVIVO interface and explore how the data-coding-analysis-interpretation process of qualitative research can be supported by NVIVO using an example from a live project. Together we will reflect on what NVIVO may, or may not, be able to do for qualitative researchers.

Researcher Development Programme (RDP): Faster Collaborative Research Writing

Faster Collaborative Research Writing

Wednesday 29 April 2020, 15:00 – 16:00

This active learning based session will cover the benefits and practicalities of moving away from word based drafts (papers, research plans, research bids) to using cloud based collaborative software when dealing with one or more research partners.

At the end of the session, you will have a greater understanding of:

  • The different (free) software that allow you to move away from draft
  • The common usages for such an approach (writing papers, chapters, research bids)
  • The benefits of such an approach and where you might want to use a draft approach instead
  • Challenges to manage this approach

  • have just joined a research group?
  • have published an article in Conversation?
  • were mentioned in a newspaper article?
  • have a new blog post?

If the answer to (most of) these questions is ‘I don’t know’, or ‘Not many’, then this session is for you

Researcher Development Programme (RDP): SPSS 2 – Intermediate

SPSS 2 – Intermediate

Monday 23 March 2020, 10:00-12:00

This session will cover the performance of basic descriptive statistical analyses using SPSS, including an introduction to the generation of both tables and graphs for presenting data. Colleagues will also be shown how to transform variables from raw data into more appropriate forms for summaries. For example, whilst it may be important to record exact ages for a sample of people, it can also be useful to be able display data for age categories. This is where the ability to transform a variable would be important. Finally, the session will include instruction on how to use filters in order to analyse different sections of a database separately. This can be very important when working with a large set of data.
