    Grounded Theory Grounded Theory Presentation Transcript

    • Grounded Theory
    • What is it?
      • Theory that is developed inductively from a corpus of data
    • Method
      • The basic idea of the grounded theory approach is to read (and re-read) the data and "discover" or label codes and their interrelationships
    • Coding
      • Open coding
      • Axial coding
      • Selective coding
    • Open Coding
      • Open coding is the part of the analysis concerned with identifying, naming, categorizing and describing phenomena found in the data
      • Each line, sentence, or paragraph is read in search of the answer to the repeated question "what is this about? What is being referenced here?"
    • Axial Coding
      • Axial coding is the process of relating codes to each other, via a combination of inductive and deductive thinking (create categories)
    • Selective Coding
      • Selective coding is the process of choosing one category to be the core category, and relating all other categories to that category
      • The essential idea is to develop a single storyline around which all everything else is draped
    • Memos
      • Memos are short documents that one writes to oneself as one proceeds through the analysis of a corpus of data
