Enhancing the quality of a GT project through
interviewing the self
A methodological development
Background
• Research focuses on how course leaders in a small-
specialist HEI experience using evidence in their role.
• Limited evidence currently exists (van Veggel & Howlett (2018))
• Building evidence-base from scratch → grounded
theory
Researcher position
• Employed at Writtle University College
• Course leader / senior lecturer
• Evidence-based Vet. Med. methodologist
• Insider researcher
• Interviewing colleagues in similar roles
• Colleagues with more and less experience
• Deliver EBP staff development for colleagues
• Outsider researcher
• EdD from external institution
• Only qualitative researcher in institution
Let’s focus on the following
• What does quality mean in qualitative research?
• What does quality mean in a grounded theory context?
• How is quality affected in GT research?
• How is interviewing-the-self useful?
• How does one interview-the-self?
Quality in qualitative research?
• Quality determined by trustworthiness and rigour
(Gasson, 2004)
 Trustworthiness is the conceptual soundness which
allows evaluation of value of research
 Credibility → Does the data reflect the findings? (also
covers researcher influence)
 Transferability → How well does your theory transfer to
another context
 Dependability → Can the process be confirmed
 Confirmability → Can someone else get similar outcomes
when given your dataset?
Rigour in GT
• Glaser (1992): Fit, work, relevance, modifiability,
parsimony and scope
• Gasson (2004): Confirmability, dependability, authenticity
and transferability
• Cooney (2011): Credibility, auditability, fittingness

Enhancing the quality of a GT project through interviewing the self - a methodological development

  • 1. Enhancing the quality of a GT project through interviewing the self A methodological development
  • 2. Background • Research focuses on how course leaders in a small- specialist HEI experience using evidence in their role. • Limited evidence currently exists (van Veggel & Howlett (2018)) • Building evidence-base from scratch → grounded theory
  • 3. Researcher position • Employed at Writtle University College • Course leader / senior lecturer • Evidence-based Vet. Med. methodologist • Insider researcher • Interviewing colleagues in similar roles • Colleagues with more and less experience • Deliver EBP staff development for colleagues • Outsider researcher • EdD from external institution • Only qualitative researcher in institution
  • 4. Let’s focus on the following • What does quality mean in qualitative research? • What does quality mean in a grounded theory context? • How is quality affected in GT research? • How is interviewing-the-self useful? • How does one interview-the-self?
  • 5. Quality in qualitative research? • Quality determined by trustworthiness and rigour (Gasson, 2004)  Trustworthiness is the conceptual soundness which allows evaluation of value of research  Credibility → Does the data reflect the findings? (also covers researcher influence)  Transferability → How well does your theory transfer to another context  Dependability → Can the process be confirmed  Confirmability → Can someone else get similar outcomes when given your dataset?
  • 6. Rigour in GT • Glaser (1992): Fit, work, relevance, modifiability, parsimony and scope • Gasson (2004): Confirmability, dependability, authenticity and transferability • Cooney (2011): Credibility, auditability, fittingness
  • 7. Rigour in GT • Amalgamating these criteria into a set of questions to be asked of a GT study (van Veggel, 2021)
  • 8. Criticisms of grounded theory • Is the theory really grounded? • Can GT really be objective? • What about researcher preconception? • Does being an insider researcher make this different?
  • 9. Insider bias/preconception • As an insider-researcher you are a source of bias • Biased research justification • Biased research design • Biased data collection • Biased data analysis • Biased outcome reporting … as long as it is addressed appropriately. In GT, this bias is a form of preconception... this is not a bad thing…
  • 10. Reflexivity in insider research • Reflexivity is the examination of one’s own beliefs, judgements and practices during the research process and their influence on the research • Reflexive research practice develops transparency (Engward & Davis 2015) • As an insider, how do you as a source of bias affect the process and the project? • Reflexive practice can enhance credibility (Hall and Callery (2001 • Once recognised, how do you acknowledge this explicitly? • Normally, this is done in a narrative, somewhat disconnected way
  • 11. Tension between reflexivity and GT • Not all GT is the same (Levers, 2013) • Role of the researcher in GT • Researcher must remain open to patterns identified and of the impact of their own preconceptions • Process managed differently (O’Connor et al., 2018) • Charmaz and Corbyn & Strauss advocate reflexivity • Glaser says reflexivity is not necessary as GT process deals with this
  • 12. Purpose & practice of self-interview • Asking yourself the same questions you ask your participants will allow you to analyse your answers through a reflexive lens • This process will allow a critical analysis of researcher bias, directly linked to the research process, and make it explicitly clear how this bias has affected the research • Interviewing-the-self is currently not used in qualitative research for this purpose • I am developing it as a contribution to grounded theory methodology
  • 13. Purpose & practice of self-interview • Ask an experienced interviewer to use your interview schedule to interview you. • Experienced: better data, make interview their own • External interviewer: prevents prediction → variations in style • Analyse your answers to questions through a reflexive lens • Use the analysis to explain your researcher bias
  • 14. Examples • I found that having to explain my thoughts made it easier to analyse them reflexively and consider them purposively • I realised through reflexively analysis I was more sensitive to negative aspects of participants roles which resonated with me  Easier to develop codes and concepts • My insiderness led to assumptions of how participants experience course leadership and projected this onto them
  • 15. Contribution to knowledge • Pragmatically, process to address the role of the researcher should be somewhere inbetween • How to be reflexive in GT is not clear (Engward & Davis, 2015) • Critical analysis of self interview allows reflexivity and acknowledgement of bias/preconception (Charmaz 2014) • Self-interview is “just another source of data” (Glaser, 2007) • It is an explicit method to increase research transparency, which leads to better research practice, which leads to increased credibility.
  • 16. Acknowledgements This work is part-funded through a Writtle University College Learning and Development Fund Grant I’d like to thank Dr Sally Goldspink for supporting the self- interview process and the constructive methodological discussions.
