Abstract

This inquiry explores the history and potential of blending grounded theory and ethnography for conducting qualitative research in education and the social sciences. We argue that grounded theory ethnography can be an effective strategy for bridging the research-to-practice gap particularly in practitioner-based fields such as adult education.

We argue that grounded theory ethnography can be an effective strategy for bridging the research-to-practice gap particularly in practitioner-based fields such as adult education.
