Abstract

Interpretive dialoguing is the conversational process between participant and researcher to construct multi-voiced interpretations of data. Including research participants within the process of knowledge construction increases the representativeness and credibility of qualitative research. Use of interpretive dialoguing in qualitative research allows researcher and participant to intentionally and mutually co-construct the ongoing data analysis, interpretation, and understanding. This collaborative data interpretation integrates the participant and their meanings in the process of data analysis and brings a sense of ethical caring (Gunzenhauser, 2006) by the researcher. Allowing research participants more fully into the process of inquiry and knowledge construction moves research to a relational endeavor; to a research standpoint of research with versus on participants (Gergen, 2009). This presentation will share the development, description, guidelines, and applications of this data analysis-interpretation method as a means of embodying care toward participants and their stories shared in qualitative research.
