This course introduces NVIVO and uses various menu option in NVIVO to analyse data.
The structure of the training session will be a combination of formal presentation alongside practical application. Those attending the training session will have access to data sets for practical sessions and can also bring their own data to use in the practical parts of the session. Among the methods we teach in the morning are: coding, browsing, queries, models, and viewing the coding stripes.
In the afternoon, an advanced application is considered. We look at the data in terms of comparing one empirical corpus with a larger, linguistic corpus. The terms keyness, discourses, concordance, agent, dominant discourses, deviant discourses, tropes and intertextuality (based in part on the work of Norman Fairclough) are used in developing an argument as follows. Those with medium-to-large databases may wish to interpret mainly a few key dominant discourses and the deviant variants that are closely related and comparable to them. The corpus analysis method enables a keyness measure to be calculated, and the most prominent discourse topics discovered. An interpretation is offered as an example using real data from South and North India. Methodologically this offers rigour, transparency, and sophistication as well as originality for a qualitative analysis.
