Thematic Analysis

Having interviewed Dr Jeff Davey we were left with a lot of notes and ideas. In order to try to focus on what was important we conducted a thematic analysis exercise together. Each person took a stack of post-it notes and wrote out what they found helpful, insightful, or important. We then shared what we had with one another and started to group together information that was similar in terms of their theme. Once we had grouped the post-its together we discussed what codes we would use to file them under. We then displayed this on the wall so that we could individually assess whether or not we felt the codes were correct.

The codes that we came up with were:

  • Habitat
  • Problems
  • Teaching
  • Photographic/mapping
  • Data collection

In order to make sure that everyone is on the same page about their meaning we created a ‘memo’ to describe each one. These codes will serve as a starting point to our research and design iteration.

  • Habitat
    • We will look into the human impact on bee habitats, and how to create bee friendly spaces
  • Problems
    • What different areas there are problems that need solving such as: Pesticides, loss of bee populations, lack of knowledge, children unable to approach hive, bees cover objects inside of the hive
  • Teaching
    • Target audience (primary school children), promote solitary bee knowledge, different bee species, life cycles, attention span of children
  • Photographic/mapping
    • Hive video recording, photos of the hive, 3D imaging of hive
  • Data collection
    • Collection of hive information, app for recording hive data
