Hello and welcome to this introductory blog for the webinar ‘Philosophical positioning in grounded theory: Striking the balance’.
We are looking forward to discussing with you concepts relating to philosophical positioning of the researcher. In preparation for this webinar, we are posing the following questions. Philosophical concepts can be complex and so we encourage you to post your responses to these questions to promote discussion and enhance understanding from different perspectives. Remember – there are no right or wrong answers!
- What is philosophy? Ontology? Epistemology?
- How do you define reality? How do you gain knowledge of the world?
- What is theoretical sensitivity? How do you get it? Once you have it, what do you do with it?
We look forward to meeting you at the webinar.
