Week 4 discussion 1

Based on the Coding Manual by Saldana (2015), briefly describe coding and the appropriate coding approaches for the phenomenological inquiry. Which of these coding approaches will help you select the most relevant categories for your data? Explain your response.

Include your own experience as well as two citations that align with or contradict your comments as sourced from peer-reviewed academic journals, industry publications, books, and/or other sources. Cite your sources using APA formatting.

If you found contradicting information to what your experience tells you, explain why you agree or disagree with the research.
