The Social Research Training and Development Office (SRTDO) conducted a two-day NVivo Training last September 19 and 20 at F600, Ateneo de Davao University.

Dr. Nicamil K. Sanchez, the resource person, provided the participants an overview on conducting qualitative as well as mixed research methodology.

NVivo is a qualitative data analysis software for researchers working on Windows and Mac operating systems.

The key functions of NVivo PRO enabled the participants to learn how to efficiently and effectively manage, code and analyze structured, semi-structured and unstructured interview data.

The participants learned how to process data such as multimedia data sources, social media contents, Evernote files, Excel spreadsheets, Access databases, and bibliographic references.

The teaching method used was hands-on, supported by presentation, demonstration, reflection, insightful exercises, discussions, question and answer, and clinic sessions.
