									      ‘USING A REPERTORY GRID IN QUALITATIVE RESEARCH’,
                 DR NEENA THOTA, UNIVERSITY OF SAINT JOSEPH, MACAU
                     Friday 1st June, 1 – 2 pm in room SAW 102 (Chelmsford)




Abstract
This talk will share my experiences in using the Repertory Grid interview technique. I will use the example of my
study that explored novice programmers’ experiences within the context of an action research project. The
primarily qualitative study combined quantitative data at the content analysis stage. The theoretical and
methodological aspects of the technique will be presented along with an appraised of the relevance and
usefulness to my study. By sharing the insights gained from the use of repertory grids, I hope to contribute to the
diversity of research methods that you can use for your research.

Biography
Neena Thota holds a Doctorate in Information Systems conferred by the University of Saint Joseph, Macau and
the Catholic University of Portugal. She is Dean of the School of Intelligent Systems and Technology, University
of Saint Joseph, Macau. Currently, she is visiting researcher at Uppsala Computing Education Research Group
(UpCERG), Uppsala University, Sweden. Her latest study investigates the intercultural interactions of Chinese
students studying computer science in Sweden. Her research interests include: computing education research
(how novice programmers learn); educational technologies (Web 2.0 tools, learning objects, visualizations, and
computing augmented learning management systems); pedagogic strategies (learning and assessment
taxonomies, variation theory, connectivism, and constructive alignment); and methodological eclecticism
(practitioner-led action research, mixed methods, and multi-paradigm research approaches).
