Designed for: All academic and research staff involved in the collection and analysis of qualitative data.

This is a 1-day course (on the day, delegates can arrange for a subsequent 30 minute consultation re their own data - this is usually the next morning or the day after that).

Course Aim: This practical workshop is targeted towards beginners wishing to use NVivo 11 for windows.
