"Core Concepts of Qualitative Research. From Grounded Theory and Sequence Analysis" 
Dr. Thorsten Berndt and Anush Yeghiazaryan, M.A. 
(University of Konstanz) 

In this course we give a proper overview to core concepts of qualitative research in general, such as theoretical sampling, dimensional analysis or sequence analysis. Mostly origin from Grounded Theory and the hermeneutical approach we will practice coding and interpretation so that participants are able to get involved with the practical challenge of qualitative methods.

On the first day we outline our programme, give an introduction to qualitative methods in general and started with epistemological basics of the Grounded Theory research process. We will end the day by having a look into ‘how to change the view from quanti to quali’. The second day is reserved for Grounded Theory concepts and especially coding in forms of open coding and coding with the code paradigm. After thirds day morning session with further main concepts of Grounded Theory – the theoretical sampling, sensitivity and saturation, the participants should be able to assess the difference between ‘just coding it with abstract summary’ and coding in the sense of social science theoretical concept generation. The third and fourth day goes on with the introduction to the social science hermeneutical approach and the practical task of meticulously sequence analysis, learning to unfold reality by its chronological given meaning. The last day we first will discuss general aspects of quality standards in qualitative research. Then the participants have to recall what they learned and bring the essence of their progress in little reports to the audience for certification.
