Drawn to Science Education: Studying Science Teaching and Learning through Drawings


Drawing of science learners.A major goal of this website is to provide an example of how drawings can be used as evidence in science education research. To this end we've provided a description of our methodology and a detailed set of coding examples for our scoring rubric. Ideas and information presented here expand upon our published work and conference presentations.

The focus of our research is on the use of drawings to study how science teaching identity can change as a result of an internship in informal science education. In particular we used drawings, with supporting data from interviews and written text, to measure changes in participants’ science teaching identity over time.
