Course date: 17/02/2020 to 21/02/2020 Duration: 5 Days Course fee: USD 800, KES 65,000

INTRODUCTION

Managing and analyzing qualitative data can be a trying experience. Qualitative data is multifaceted, rich in nature, unstructured and at times can be overwhelming where the researcher will be provided with information beyond the scope of the study. Combining a qualitative research data management and data analysis with technology is frown by some qualitative researchers. Qualitative researchers now have the option to apply technology tools in their approach for data management and data analysis to ease the complexity of the research process.

This course aims to build the capacity of qualitative researchers in qualitative data management and analysis using NVivo qualitative software. This software has many features that can assist to simplify the whole process of doing qualitative research.
