Workshop “Grounded Theory” for Doctoral Students

This workshop interactively examines the basic ideas and concepts of Grounded Theory (GT) methodology in theory and practice. In the first phase, we will discuss GT’s philosophical origins as well as its main methodological perspectives. Then we address key issues such as what is a GT research question and how to phrase questions that are appropriate to the GT imperative of openness in order to discuss the main features of a GT study design. In a third phase, we will analyze potential challenges and pitfalls of the research practice. GT concepts that might seem blurry, e.g. “saturation of data” and “theoretical sampling”, will be clarified.
