What is coding?
 Coding is the process of defining what the
  data are all about (Charmaz, 1995).
 In thematic analysis and grounded theory, it
  is the process of identifying themes or
  concepts that are in the data.
 Coding links the data to an emergent theory
What are the types of coding?
 Open coding
 Axial coding
 Selective coding
Processes in Open coding
 Explore the data.
 Identify the units of analysis.
 Code for meanings, feelings, actions.
 Make metaphors for data.
 Experiment with codes.
 Compare and contrast events, actions and feelings.
 Break codes in subcategories.
 Integrate codes into more inclusive codes.
 Identify properties of codes.
Processes in Axial coding
 Explore the codes.
 Examine the relationship between codes
 Specify the conditions associated with a
  code.
 Review data to confirm associations and new
  codes.
 Compare codes with preexisting theory.
Processes in Selective coding
 Identify the core code or central story in the
  analysis.
 Examine the relationship between the core
  code and other codes.
 Compare coding scheme with preexisting
  theory.
