Constructing and revising templates in qualitative analysis: An interview with a PhD student

By Graham R. Gibbs and Dawn Clarke


Frances Rogers on constructing and revising templates: Interview with a PhD student about her qualitative analysis This interview, from the HEA funded REQUALLO project, looks at how a PhD student undertook her qualitative analysis. The videos focus on the templates – the coding schemes – that Frances Rogers used in her analysis. There was a first and second version of an initial template and then a final version of the template. In the main, she developed these to analyse the interviews from the patients and most of the revisions were prompted by reading and thinking about what the patients said. Later she examined the interviews with the doctors, but this required only minor revisions to her coding scheme. Sections 1. Constructing the first version of the initial template = Frances talks about the sources for ideas about coding that contributed to the construction of her first coding scheme or template. 2. Revising the template - How Frances began to revise the template and think about the analytic nature of the codes 3. Constructing the final template - Frances radically revised and reduced the template to reflect her developing idea about how to analyse the data. 4. Analysing the interviews with the doctors More information on this case study can be found here:
