SSRL Research Methods Summer Institute

Join us for rethink research, the SSRL Research Methods Summer Institute, May 4 - 15, 2020.

A unique and exciting training opportunity, rethink research consists of numerous hands-on, immersive workshops aimed at providing participants with practical, usable knowledge and skills in social research methods. Through a combination of lectures and hands-on exercises, including specialized software training, workshop participants are exposed to a variety of methods and tools that strengthen critical thinking skills and provide practical knowledge to explore and understand the world we live in. All workshops draw on real-world examples of where and how social research methods may be used and applied. 

Registration is open to all University of Saskatchewan faculty, students and staff, and employees of government, non-governmental organizations and community-based organizations. All registrations are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants may register in one or more of the workshops offered. Registrations are limited, and individual workshops fill up quickly!

All registrants are required to pay a refundable deposit of $50.00 per registered workshop. For example, a registrant attending one workshop is required to provide to the SSRL a refundable deposit of $50.00, while a registrant attending five workshops is required to provide to the SSRL a refundable deposit of $250.00. The refundable deposit must be provided to the SSRL to complete the registration process and reserve the workshop seat(s). The refundable deposit of $50.00 per registered workshop is collected by the SSRL to ensure registrants attend the session(s) for which they are registered.

NVivo Training

The SSRL offers regularly-scheduled training in NVivo 12 Pro for Windows, led by SSRL Qualitative Research Manager and Specialist and NVivo Certified Expert, Rachel Tang.

The two-hour introductory NVivo 12 Pro for Windows training session utilizes a hands-on approach with a sample data set. The instructor introduces users to working with data in NVivo (importing, opening, and organizing various file types), guides learners through exploring and coding data in order to analyze for themes, and demonstrates novel program features. This workshop is most helpful for beginners or those who would like a refresher on how to manage and categorize data in order to enhance their thematic analysis skills and gain overall insight as to how NVivo for Windows is used in qualitative research.

Registration is open to all University of Saskatchewan faculty, students and staff, and employees of government, non-governmental organizations and community-based organizations. Registrations are processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
