This course aims to provide participants with practical strategies for conducting and evaluating analysis of
qualitative data and based on such data create theories. In other words, we develop theories contesting current
theories based on our data or alternatively we may develop theories based on current research that have been
conducted such as downstream research .Such research provides findings that result in new theories. The major
thrust of the course will be to inform participants about grounded research, theory building, and the
complexities that underlie Grounded Theory. Precisely, it seeks to define Grounded Theory, underline its core
elements, and in particular comprehensively explicate the coding mechanism such as open coding, axial coding,
and selective coding.
