Qualitative Data Analysis

Qualitative Data Analysis with NVivo - Part I

NVivo 11 is a software package for analysis of qualitative data, such as transcripts of in-depth interviews, focus groups and field notes, data from electronic web surveys, audio, video, and social media data. The purpose of this workshop is to introduce participants to the NVivo 11 Suite, discuss the key differences between different versions of this software, as well as to provide participants with an opportunity to acquire some hands-on experience. Specifically, the participants will learn how to prepare their text and media data for analyses with NVivo 11, import and organize their data in NVivo, add research notes while analyzing the data, and code qualitative data in a variety of different ways. This workshop is appropriate for beginner researchers with no previous knowledge of NVivo as well as those who would like to expand their knowledge and skills with this software.

Qualitative Data Analysis with NVivo - Part III

The focus of this workshop is the management and analysis of audio, video and survey data in NVivo. Many researchers these days collect their data through online survey tools like Survey Monkey, Fluid Surveys and Survey Wizard. These surveys often include a mixture of quantitative and qualitative (open ended) responses. NVivo offers a set of tools for analyses of such data. The purpose of this workshop is to introduce participants to the features of NVivo software that allow analyzing survey data in an efficient and convenient way.  In addition, the participants will learn how to transcribe and code media data in NVivo. This workshop is appropriate for researchers with limited knowledge of NVivo 11 as well as those who would like to expand their knowledge of its capabilities. Taking NVivo Part I workshop is strongly recommended for those who consider attending this workshop.

Quantitative Data Analysis

Quantitative Data Analysis with SPSS - Part I

The focus of this workshop is two-fold: 1) to introduce researchers to the SPSS syntax mode and its effective use; and 2) to give them hands-on experience with a wide range of transformation techniques and helpful data management features, ways to automate their work with quantitative data, manipulate their data files and results, and export outputs to other computer programs. This workshop will benefit SPSS novices as well as researchers who want to learn about more effective uses of the program features.

Quantitative Data Analysis with SPSS - Part II

The course will guide participants through the fundamentals of using SPSS for exploratory data analysis. Participants will learn the basics of exploratory data analysis for examination of single variables and pairs of variables, and formatting and exporting SPSS outputs for the effective presentation of results. The basics of using SPSS will be demonstrated and discussed. This workshop is appropriate for researchers who have some experience with SPSS, but want to learn about its capabilities and effective use.

Quantitative Data Analysis with SPSS - Part III

The General Linear Model (GLM) is a flexible statistical tool underlying most statistical techniques used in educational and social research: t-test, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA), repeated-measures ANOVA and many of the multivariate methods. This workshop will briefly introduce the main concepts of general linear models, application of these models to social research data and interpretation of the results. A wide range of GLMs will be illustrated with many examples. The focus of this workshop is the practical application of GLMs using SPSS with minimal emphasis on statistical theory. Participants are expected to have working knowledge of SPSS and statistics.
