This panel discusses various ways in which to incorporate arts-based strategies within a traditional qualitative research design, in order to generate additional data, address researcher bias, deepen qualitative analysis, and enhance the presentation of research findings. The presentation will also discuss how to teach such creative combinations in qualitative research courses, with examples of bracketing collages and found data poetry created by students in a doctoral program in conflict analysis and resolution. Finally, the panel will discuss a pedagogical research project which encompassed designing a multiple case study to explore the experience and outcomes of two phenomenological studies related to identity-based conflict, one of which used traditional phenomenological methods, and the other of which included arts-based techniques.
