Abstract Title: The case for (better) illustrations in qualitative physics education research
Abstract: Screenshots and illustrations of video frames are being increasingly used in qualitative physics education research publications, alongside more traditional text-based transcripts, as a way to convey visual features of video data that are not captured by text-based transcripts alone. We present a case for an increased attention to the quality and effectiveness of research-based illustrations, highlighting both the potential affordances of intelligible illustrations in relation to the aims of qualitative research, as well as the relative ease with which professional-looking illustrations can be created with the digital tools at the disposal of most contemporary researchers.
