Student teacher views on the role of the university
This study is a qualitative research following a case studies design. I am using arts-informed methods such as drawings and photovoice (photographs) complemented by in-depth individual semi-structured interviews and field-notes from observations. I developed two stages of the data construction process which was conducted between May to October 2017.
I conducted my analysis on two levels considering the two research questions. In the case of the first research question, after using various coding methods of analysis, the data was examined to define codes, categories, themes (first generation), thematic categories (second generation of themes) and major themes to discuss. In the case of the second research question, a similar process was conducted as well as to define meta codes, outcomes, thematic categories and propose main themes to discuss the findings based on the two research questions. In the data constructed of both research questions, I followed a crystallization process.
This study used ATLAS.ti 8™ software and the following general research methods for data analysis: member reflections, reflecting with supervisor, denotation and connotation of drawings, and photovoice techniques.
