“Mastering Mixed Methodology and Analyzing Qualitative/Quantitative Data using SPSS and NVIVO Software”

Hands on Session using SPSS and NVIVO Software


Mixed methods research is the type of research in which a researcher or team of researchers combines elements of qualitative and quantitative. There has also been a renewed focus on the integration of qualitative and quantitative methods in addressing research questions/objectives. Mixed methods research involves use of qualitative and quantitative viewpoints for research design, data collection and analysis until inferences are being made.


Research Center for Training & Development (RCTD) is organizing an International Research Workshop “Mastering Mixed Methodology and Analyzing Quantitative/Qualitative Data Using SPSS & NVIVO Software”on 13th & 14th of November, 2012 through High Definition (HD) Video Conferencing.


The design of the workshop is based on cases and exercises. The researcher will be trained first in qualitative and quantitative research methodologies and then integration of qualitative and quantitative methods (mixed methodology). The workshop also includes hands on session on data analysis using SPSS and NVIVO Software.


The researchers from Universities,Institutes, R&D organizations and Social Sector organizations are invited to participate individually or institutional in their own auditorium/office/home from anywhere around the world. The individual participant can participate using a laptop/desktop computer connected through internet.
