Reconstructive grounded theory with f4analysis

“f4analysis … is also suitable for reconstructive procedures due to its simplicity and flexibility. Especially the provision of different “writing spaces”… makes the program suitable for methodological approaches that go beyond pure coding.”

Reconstructive method

Implemented quite concretely in f4analysis, with teaching unitsn

Irene Somm and Marco Hajart show how elements of narrative analysis and the documentary method can be combined with a sequential coding procedure in the style of Grounded Theory in f4analyse.

In a two-stage interpretation process, a rough sequential analysis, in which the (overall) story arc of a case is reconstructed, alternates with a fine analysis, which includes open sequential and axial coding, and their mutual reference to each other promotes the cognitive process.

In addition, concrete suggestions for teaching units in the context of qualitative teaching research projects can be found.
