Please describe your own experience with using qualitative methods and how far you are in your PhD.
Science education research has previously been dominated by a quantitative regime applied by science researchers. However, the use of qualitative methods has gained momentum and belongs to a growing area within the field. The area is growing both because the field of science education are moving towards asking explorative questions as why and how (as for example why do young people struggle to see themselves in science) but also because the cross-disciplinary field of science education draws on both natural science knowledge and theories and methodologies from social science and the humanities.
