Time-saving Technology for Researchers

5th November, 11am–12noon NZDT

If you’re short on time with deadlines flying past faster than you can keep track of, join us to learn about the technology we use to save time and manage our research projects. Speed up your data analysis with SPSS and NVivo, keep track of your tasks with Trello, automate typing and scheduling with TextExpander and Calendly, generate fast transcriptions with Otter, and keep on top of your references and other information with Evernote and Zotero (just to name a few!).

NVivo for Literature Reviews

9th November, 11am–12noon NZDT

Reviewing the literature is an important part of the research process. Organising relevant papers and findings are more than just data entry or bibliographic tasks, you also need to be able to analyse and integrate this material with the qualitative data you are gathering. This one-hour demonstration will provide an overview of NVivo’s functionality with regard to literature reviews. Importing and coding literature, running queries on published material, and working with bibliographic data in conjunction with your NVivo project will all be covered.
