Get a hands-on introduction to qualitative (manual) text coding for individual and team settings. Based on a grounded theory approach, open coding allows research subjects to speak for themselves without explicitly relying on our own pre-existing ideas. Code emergent concepts and ideas, justify codes with supporting data, and work with themes to refine codes and build models from coded data.

Participants will be able to:
-Describe the purposes of Open Text Coding
-Evaluate the appropriateness of Open Text Coding for a given research project
-Perform initial open coding on a small corpus of written sources
-Refine initial codes collaboratively with other researchers to create axial coding schema
