Investigation of STEAM-Themed Thesis Conducted in Turkey in the Field of Educational Sciences in terms of Visual Arts

İ̇̇smail HELVACI [1]


The aim of this research is to evaluate the STEAM-themed studies in the field of Educational Sciences in terms of art practices. By examining the national-origined postgraduate thesis about the STEAM approach, it has been requested to reveal the usage nature of the discipline of Art within this holistic structure. In the study, document analysis was used as one of the qualitative research approaches. Descriptive analysis technique was used in analyzing the data. Including 10 master's and 3 doctoral dissertations, a total of 13 publications were examined in the research. Theses are classified according to their types, years of publication, research subject and results for the field of study. Based on the findings of the study, the STEAM approach has been a subject of research for the last two years; it is mostly studied at master's level compared to doctoral dissertations; it has been researched within the Science and Mathematics disciplines. It has been observed that, this approach that puts art at its center has not been studied sufficiently within the scope and perspective of fine arts education. In order to enrich the application examples of STEAM approach and in the name of not to deny the effect of Art within the disciplines that form STEAM, suggestions have been proposed.
