Abstract

Constructivist grounded theory methodology sets the tone for a continuous inquiry by engaging the researcher in a multilayered dialogue involving multiple participants. This main conversation is complemented by reflections of the researcher who is continuously invited to engage in the process of self-examination through memo writing. In addition, other voices and perspectives are solicited and welcomed during the peer-debriefing phase of the study. In the process of such conversation, both the researcher and the participants engage in transformative experiences: such transformation is a result of the interaction itself as much as the outcome of a particular conversation. In this presentation the researcher will particularly reflect on change in view point that she experienced while completing a research study in the framework of her dissertation thesis.
