SRA: Grounded Theory: A practical guide to qualitative analysis

The course is designed for those wanting to understand and to apply the grounded theory approach to the analysis of qualitative data. It will provide a step by step guide to those new to the field. Because grounded theory is essentially an inductive approach the course is most suitable for those who have not yet begun, or are in the early stages of, data collection. However, those with previously-collected data will also find the course useful for application at the analysis stage as well as for future projects. The trainers will be using the approach developed by Strauss and Corbin and, more recently, by Kathy Charmaz, and will draw on examples from the fields of social science. The course is applied and practical.

Course Objectives:

Grounded theory consists of systematic yet flexible guidelines for the collection and analysis of data to construct theory grounded in those data. By the end of the course participants will:

  • be able to recognise and describe an applied grounded theory approach, and distinguish its positivist and constructivist developments
  • be enabled to carry out rich data collection and analysis in line with grounded theory approaches
  • have experience in coding, memo writing, and grounded theory construction.
