Methodological map: a mixed methods approach to explore the role of space in an Emirati single-gender learning environment
This paper provides a methodological map that guides the choice and application of research paradigms and design frames that can be of value to a wide range of researchers in the fields of education, social sciences and interdisciplinary studies who are interested in teaching and learning for women. Following an interpretivist/constructivist paradigm I used a mixed methods research approach to study the spatial experiences of Emirati female students. The main component was qualitative, using ethnography, while the quantitative part included a survey. In such a research approach, my reflexivity and unique positionality as both insider and outsider played a significant role. The Paper is divided into three sections: "the beginning", which justifies the choice and philosophies of the methodological route, the "journey", which illustrates the data collection techniques, and the "destination" with reflexive lessons from the field.
