Also, she held university appointments at the Western Australian Institute of Technology (now Curtin University), Mount Lawley College and Graylands College (now Edith Cowan University). Prior to becoming a university science educator in Australia in 1974, Tobin taught high school physics, chemistry, biology general science, and mathematics for 10 years. She began a program of research in 1973 that continues to the present day – teaching and learning of science and learning to teach science. Chapter 2 Multilectics and Its Methods Gene Fellner Researchers often conflate the terms methodology and method, but they are not interchangeable.

With the permission of the group, I video record our discussion. Video is a method designed to illuminate activity on the meso and micro levels of social life.

The micro level of analysis reveals unconscious enactments of knowledge that are difficult to capture in the moment; video makes it possible to retrieve and study events after they have taken place (though analyzing an event retrospectively unavoidably alters interpretation).
