Abstract

Making sense of qualitative data is the title of a handbook by Goffey and Atkinson. But is probably one of the most important tasks a researcher has while doing a qualitative study. At the same time, it is one of the most difficult tasks because 'meaning' is a precious stone that is daunting difficult to mine for.
In this seminar, we will use the Grounded Theory methodology to show starting researchers how they can analyse their data in a systematic way.

The following topics are discussed in the seminar.
(1) The transcript process: how do you transcribe ? What is necessary for a good transcript ?
(2) Coding: what is open coding ? How do you choose your codes ?
(3) Axial coding: what is axial coding ? How do concepts arise from your data ?
(4) Selective coding: how to build your theoretical framework ? How to use graphical representations and storytelling effectively in your journal articles ?

This seminar uses no software (see the seminars on Nvivo) and works with paper and pencil. All participants will work on material from the teacher but are invited to relate the workshop to their own study.
