Becoming Teacher: A/r/tographical Inquiry and Visualising Metaphor
Boulton, Adrienne; Grauer, Kit; L. Irwin, Rita
International Journal of Art & Design Education, v36 n2 p200-214 Jun 2017
A great deal has been written about the representational use of metaphor to understand teacher candidates'/new teachers' conceptions of teacher practice. This article will discuss recent research that explored secondary visual art teacher candidates'/new teachers' "visualising" of visual metaphors to provoke their a/r/tographical inquiry into their perceptions of practice. This article engages with the Deleuzian conception "becoming" as well as the ontology of difference to provoke the reimagination of metaphor in research. We offer new understandings about visualising the visual in research and the methodological implications of relational research practices.
