Transcript

  • 1. Grounded Theory
  • 2. What is it?
    • Theory that is developed inductively from a corpus of data
  • 3. 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
  • 4. Coding
    • Open coding
    • Axial coding
    • Selective coding
  • 5. 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?"
  • 6. Axial Coding
    • Axial coding is the process of relating codes to each other, via a combination of inductive and deductive thinking (create categories)
  • 7. 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
  • 8. Memos
    • Memos are short documents that one writes to oneself as one proceeds through the analysis of a corpus of data
