Using Qualitative Grounded Methodology in Educational Research

An introduction for emerging researchers

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This book introduces the reader to grounded methodology and its ethical approach, as a narrative, less coding-dependent version of grounded theory. This methodology is designed to develop and evaluate learning and education projects. Grounded methodology is designed to challenge traditional educational research methodologies, and in doing so questions the notion of the need for highly formal research in institutional settings. In this respect, it is also a simple way of planning an educational project that needs an evaluative element. Grounded methodology is ideal for students who are novice researchers in final year undergraduate or post-graduate level programs. These students will want to conduct small scale studies but do not want the highly technical or formal coding structures of traditional grounded theory. As well as introducing the reader to the background of grounded methodology, this book highlights data collection techniques used in the course of real educational research. These techniques include: • Observations • Interviews • Course Development • Systematic Literature Search • Participant Diaries • On-line data collection To round of its discussion, this book discusses a case study of a European Union Horizon 2020 funded project working with participant groups of people with disabilities in museums in Europe - these museums include the V&A and Wallace Collection (London) Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza and Museo Lázaro Galdiano (Madrid) and KHM-Museumsverband (Vienna). Although the case study is an example of research with disabled participants, it is purely illustrative. The focus of the book is grounded methodology, its philosophy and framework. The book aims to: • Introduce a grounded methodology approach through an exploration of its framework amongst existing models • Investigate the practical realities of researching educational institutions, and the differences in educational, national and cultural backgrounds The book’s objectives are to: • Introduce new and novice researchers to grounded methodology, and the practicalities of studies in institutions of learning and education using innovative data collection techniques • Introduce readers to a framework of ethics that can be used with grounded methodology
