Thematic analysis of interview scripts regarding public open spaces

Thematic analysis of interview scripts regarding public open spaces
“If you are finding it difficult identifying some theory to explore your main theme in your discussion have a look at a Social and/or Community Psychology textbooks for inspiration. I stress here, the theory you should be referring to explore your theme is not going to be qualitative research theory, rather, theory that might relate to attitudes, values, how we engage with each other, equity, sense of place, sense of community, resource allocation and conflict etc. I am not saying that the ?answer? is in social psychology or community psychology rather, it might help you with getting some inspiration as to the sorts of theory you might like to draw on. See this as an opportunity to explore new ideas and have some fun in the discovery process.
2. Speaking of ?answers? there are no specific themes that we are looking for! What we are looking for are clear themes that are well explained, supported and justified. We want to see meaningful themes that illustrate the depth of your analysis! So refer to your marking guide and be sure you fulfil those requirements.
3. Don?t forget to refer to your thematic map in text. You might like to open your findings section explaining how a number of themes emerged from your Thematic Analysis and you have presented these themes visually in a thematic map (which you have in your Appendix). Go on them to explain how the reader is to understand the map. For example, if there a dotted link connecting boxes, what is the line for and what do the boxes mean? When you explore your themes in your findings section, it would also be nice to refer back to you map on occasion too. Your thematic map can be hand drawn too, but make sure it is professional looking, and remember only use colour if necessary for interpretive purposes. The APA 6th Edition style guide has rules about the unnecessary use of colour figures, so it is good practice to try and keep things simple.
4. Your annotated transcripts do not need to be tidy, nor do you need to submit these to Turnitin. Rather, they serve the purpose of allowing your marker to refer to your analysis if we are perplexed or fascinated by something you have raised in your assessment. Sometimes it can be struggle to code content in one column and the more analytical codes in another ? just do what works for you. Analysis and coding (whether topic or analytical coding) can be an iterative process too.
5. Fundamentally; don?t forget that by meaning we are referring not to how the participants define what POS is, but what the social and emotional significance POS has to their lives. Also, please do not quantify anything!”
