The art of analyzing qualitative data: Grounded theory and inductive data analysis
主讲人：Professor Brett Elizabeth Blake
Dr. Brett Elizabeth Blake is a Professor of Literacy and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) in the School of Education at St. John’s University in New York City, where she is also the Program Coordinator for all the Master’s Degree Literacy programs and a Senior Research Fellow at the Vincentian Center for Social Justice and Poverty.
Dr. Blake has written and published extensively on the learning of diverse students, especially for those whom English is not their first language. Her most recent books include, “A road less traveled: Critical literacy and language learning in the classroom, 1964-1996” with her late father, Dr. Robert W. Blake, and “Teaching writing for all: Process, genres and activities,” an anthology co-written with Dr. Maslak, the presenter for the first part of this lecture series.
Dr. Blake earned her Master’s degree in linguistics from Northwestern University and her Doctorate in curriculum design from the University of Illinois, Chicago.
The purpose of this lecture and interactive workshop is to follow through on Part I of this qualitative research series, “Research writing for all: Thinking and writing in the qualitative paradigm.” Here, during the 1st half of the lecture/workshop, participants will share their qualitative research plans including preliminary interviews and/or observations conducted (introduced during Part I by Dr. Maslak). The second half of this lecture/workshop will focus on the theories and practices of research analysis, with a focus on grounded theory and inductive analysis. Participants will also actively learn how to “code” data, report results and develop conclusions and implications. It is hoped that at the end of this 2-Part series, attendees will be ready to begin a study of their own.
