NVivo Training & Qualitative Software Presentation for NC State
Dr. Asher Beckwitt has accepted an invitation to present a workshop titled "Gathering and Analyzing Multimedia Data" at the Data and Visualization Institute for Librarians at North Carolina State. During this presentation, she will discuss the pros and cons of using qualitative data analysis research software. In addition, she will demonstrate how to work with multimedia data in the NVivo qualitative data analysis software.
Abstract: There are unique challenges in capturing, transforming, describing, storing, and making connections among data of different formats and sources such as pdf, audio, video, graphical, Web, and Google Earth data. This workshop will illustrate the challenges of working with multimedia data and the capabilities of qualitative data analysis programs (ATLAS.ti, NVivo, MaxQDA) to facilitate coding and interpreting of audio, video, and graphical data. Examples of research strategies that allow graphical display and examination of relationships between entities will be provided.
For this session, the objectives are for participants to:
--develop a familiarity with the problem space (i.e., conceptual knowledge, an understanding of important terms, awareness of typical challenges)
--experience a concrete example of tools and methods applied within this problem space
