The theory of grounding your phenomenon: methodologies in qualitative research

Date:                    Saturday 5 September
Half-day:              1330-1630
Location:              SECC
Level:                    Intermediate

Facilitators: Esther Helmich (Center for Evidence- Based Education, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands); Renée Stalmeijer (Maastricht University, The Netherlands)

The aim of this workshop is to give participants insight into grounded theory and phenomenology as two different methodologies within qualitative research. We will start with an exercise around some core principles in qualitative research, followed by a general introduction into the two methodologies (principles and rationale of grounded theory and phenomenology). Next, participants will be asked to analyse several papers in order to determine the differences in approach, the influence on research questions, study design, sampling, data collection and data analysis. This will ultimately result in a visual overview which will serve as the starting point for a group discussion. We will focus on the implications and possibilities of the different methodologies for qualitative research.

Cost: £65 (includes coffee)
