Grounded Theory Research Design

What is grounded theory? Grounded theory is: a research method that will enable you to:develop a theory whichoffers and explanation aboutthe main concern of the population of your substantive area andhow that concern is resolved or processed.

What is grounded theory?

For example in my PhD study, the main concern of online learners is finding the time to study and temporal integration is the core category which explains how the concern is resolved or processed. Different types of learners employ different strategies: Jugglers and Strugglers employ successful temporal integration strategies which enable them to study (with more or less pain), whilst Fade-aways and Leavers are unsuccessful and fail to complete the programme.

Understanding how temporal integration does or does not happen has implications for learning design and learner persistence. For the nurses of Nathanial’s study, their main concern was moral distress and the core category which processed their concern was moral reckoning. How do you do grounded theory? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Literature Review and Constructivist Grounded Theory Methodology. Volume 16, No. 3, Art. 19 – September 2015 Literature Review and Constructivist Grounded Theory Methodology Rodrigo Ramalho, Peter Adams, Peter Huggard & Karen Hoare Abstract: In grounded theory research it is commonly discouraged to conduct a literature review before data collection and analysis.

Literature Review and Constructivist Grounded Theory Methodology

Engaging with the literature about the researched area in that stage of the research is described as a constraining exercise rather than a guiding one. This can be a puzzling notion for the researcher engaging with grounded theory methodology (GTM), particularly when she/he is expected to produce a literature review in early stages of the research process, e.g., by ethics committees and/or funding bodies.

Grounded Theory as a General Research Methodology

Holton, Ph.D. Abstract Since its inception over forty years ago, grounded theory has achieved canonical status in the research world (Locke, 2001, p.1). Qualitative researchers, in particular, have embraced grounded theory although often without sufficient scholarship in the methodology (Partington, 2000, p.93; 2002, p.136). "Maternal Postpartum Role Collapse as a Theory of Postpartum Depression" by Linda Clark Amankwaa. Abstract The purpose of this paper is to discuss the development of a theory of maternal postpartum role collapse.

"Maternal Postpartum Role Collapse as a Theory of Postpartum Depression" by Linda Clark Amankwaa

The influences of traditional role theory and symbolic interactionism are presented. The development of the maternal postpartum role collapse theory emerged from the study of postpartum depression among African-American women (Amankwaa, 2000). "Studying Human-Centered IT Innovation Using a Grounded Action Learning" by David J. Pauleen and Pak Yoong. Abstract This paper describes how two research methodologies, grounded theory and action learning, were combined to produce a rigorous yet creative and flexible method for field study of a recent IT-based innovation, virtual teams.

"Studying Human-Centered IT Innovation Using a Grounded Action Learning" by David J. Pauleen and Pak Yoong

Essentially, an action learning program was used to train facilitators of virtual teams and generate research data while grounded theory techniques were used to analyze and interpret the data. This paper shows how this combined method can be used to develop local and practical theory for complex, human-centered areas of information technology. The implications of this grounded action learning approach for practice and research in IS will be discussed. Keywords. "Grounded Theory Methodology: Positivism, Hermeneutics, and Pragmatism" by Lars-Johan Age. Abstract Glaserian grounded theory methodology, which has been widely adopted as a scientific methodology in recent decades, has been variously characterised as "hermeneutic" and "positivist.

" "Application of Constructivist Grounded Theory in Nursing Research" by Maria da Graça O. Crossetti, Marta G. Goes et al. Abstract Grounded Theory is a qualitative research method for collecting and analysing data and results into a substantive theory that is a theoretical interpretation of a delimited problem in a specific area of knowledge.

"Application of Constructivist Grounded Theory in Nursing Research" by Maria da Graça O. Crossetti, Marta G. Goes et al.

In nursing, it allows to understand the process of social interaction and how the nursing team works in everyday situations. In this study we propose, based on the theoretical framework of Kathy Charmaz, to present the procedures for the application of the constructivist Grounded Theory in nursing research. Among these are the collection and analysis of concurrent data, constant comparison at all levels of analysis, initial, focused and axial coding, conducting memos, among other resources, construction of categories, evaluation and development of the theory.

Richard Lee Starcher, University of Nebraska - Lincoln Abstract Within the milieu of higher theological education in Africa there is a great demand for highly educated nationals to staff a growing number of theological colleges and seminaries.

"Africans in pursuit of a theological doctorate: A grounded theory stu" by Richard Lee Starcher

Due largely to a dearth of other opportunities, Africans desiring theological doctorates have pursued higher studies in Europe and North America. The same pattern is common in other non-Western contexts. However, this practice is perceived as producing certain undesirable “side-effects” (e.g., brain-drain, reintegration difficulties, contextually inappropriate training). ^ Theological graduate schools in numerous non-Western settings (e.g., Latin America, Korea, India, and Singapore) are launching doctoral programs.
