Using the Art of Trompe L'Oeil to Research Induction and Mentoring
Kirkby, Jane; Moss, Julianne; Godinho, Sally
Teaching Education, v26 n2 p131-144 2015
This paper reveals how the art device of trompe l'oeil provided a way of thinking about the induction and mentoring experiences of seven beginning teachers in secondary school settings in the state of Victoria, Australia. The research study--a phenomenological, narrative inquiry--drew on Bourdieu's theorising of "misrecognition" and "symbolic violence" to analyse data collected from interviews and the participants' diary entries (written narratives). Both the trompe l'oeil art device and the theoretical lens illuminated the reframing of the participants' initial understandings of mentor relationships to gain a different perspective on their early professional lives.
