Workshops & Events

NVivo (Part 2) for PC - Classification and Datasets - 10:30am

Facilitators: Jose and Ida.

NVivo's classification capabilities will help you add demographic data to your nodes, and bibliographic data to your sources. Datasets allow you to import and work with tabular material from spreadsheets, database tables, surveys, and social media. If you are comfortable with the basics of NVivo (importing sources, creating nodes, and coding) and would like to explore new ways of working with qualitative data, this workshop is for you!

This workshop will take place in our computer lab, so bringing your own laptop is optional.

NVivo is available for free for all UBC students. You can download NVivo here.


Multi-Disciplinary Graduate Student Writing Community - 1:00pm

Facilitator: Nandini.

Experience shows that it is easier (and more pleasant) to get your thesis written when you do two things:

1. Write regularly
2. Are part of a writing group or community

Our peer-facilitated writing communities give you the opportunity to do both; Weekly meetings with a Peer Writing Consultant from the Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication give you a chance to work out writing goals for the week, ask questions, share best practices, and connect with your peers. Throughout the week, engage in a facilitated online space that allows you to ask questions, keep each other accountable, and share your work for feedback if you wish. The goal of this community is to offer support, engagement with your peers in other programs, and extra accountability to keep you writing until your thesis is done.

Presented by The Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication.
