Building Theory of Digital Fabrication Laboratories in the Field of Information System using Grounded Theory Approach
This study illustrates a grounded theory approach to build the theory of digital fabrication laboratories in the field of information systems. This approach is chosen based on the theory-building process, where data is drawn from the thoughts, experiences, and views of the respondents. This study involved 5 (five) respondents who came from practitioners and lecturers in the field of information systems. Data collection results were analyzed through three stages, namely open coding, axial coding, and selective coding. Based on these stages, the definition of digital fabrication laboratories in the field of information systems is a medium for exchanging knowledge between experts and learners which has components of exchange techniques/methods knowledge, technology, motivation, features, and themes in the field of information systems that are part of the conversion process knowledge on the SECI framework. Due to time constraints, this study only uses data from practitioners. This media can be designed and implemented by educational organizations in the field of information systems so as to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the knowledge conversion process.
