As a visual learner, I love conceptualizing my thoughts using abstract elements; it allow for a better understanding and facilitate capturing the complexities. Visual images in qualitative research can be used “as a vehicle for discovering and communicating meanings that emerge in the research process” (Jongeward, 2009, p. 240). Using visuals in qualitative scholarly work provides a context for promoting innovative research and advancing knowledge. Creating the visuals always help me better understand the abstract concepts. These are a few examples of my visualizations, whiteboard videos, and info-graphics that I created in different research projects.
