Contents: The key purpose of this workshop is to offer a comprehensive introduction to Grounded Theory and it is both, theoretically and practically, orientated. First, participants meet the so-called “essentials”: research design; data collection, open/axial/selective coding, categorizing, writing memos and theoretical sampling (the subjects theoretical sensitivity and generating theory will only be touched), then, second, examples might exercise and clarify these concepts. To assist participants to develop valuable and effective research practices, two or three exemplars from current research projects will be assessed and reflected. If you are interested in this working method please submit a brief abstract (1-2 pp.) to irwsnetwork@gmail.com.
