Grounded Theory: The Basics

This one day workshop covers the basics of grounded theory.  Participants will learn techniques such as theoretical sampling, line-by-line coding, axial coding, memo-writing, theoretical saturation, member checks, and presentation of models. The course takes a hands on approach, and uses both lectures and activities where participants work with real data.  While emphasis is on building conceptual and methodological expertise, participants will also learn how to use text analysis software.  This workshop is appropriate as an introduction for scholars interested in developing specialized analytic skills in grounded theory.  The techniques are particularly useful for researchers using inductive, grounded, ethnogrphic, and exploratory approaches. Participants will complete the course with the basic skills to complete a grounded theory analysis. This is an advanced workshop.

Workshop is limited to 20 participants
