Teaching NVivo: The Digital Kaleidoscope

I like to think of NVivo as a digital kaleidoscope. Much like the cherished toy, this computing technology enables scholars to view, decode and capture different facets of various kinds of digital objects. I would be happy to facilitate a teaching session about the nature and applications of NVivo, as well as how you can use it to examine various objects in a digital environment. At its core NVivo is a tool that aids with qualitative data analysis, but it  is also embedded in an environment of creating, sharing and disseminating digital social science. My personal exploration of this user-driven computing technology introduced to me to a vast spectrum of uses in the social sciences. If the session goes ahead I will share what I know and hopefully you will share too.

Tentative topics could be:

  • What is NVivo
  • Working with texts
  • Working with pictures
  • Working with sound
  • Working with video
  • Telling a story / visualize your data
