Description

Abstract

Purpose: This research is an autoethnography of a doctoral student’s journey during COVID-19. It uses the metaphor of paintings and drawings to imply the relationship among self-study, well-being, and art for the researcher as an international doctoral student.

Methods: The data of this study includes self-story and art artifacts.

Results: The educational benefits resulting from this process are identified, and the importance and role of innovative models in the school’s environment are highlighted. Using ICT innovations in the planning of the theatrical event brought students in touch with new technologies and greatly enhanced their digital skills. Moreover, their psychology and self-confidence were enhanced. The data are analyzed using Flow Theory and “belonging” to reveal the meaning of art in the researcher’s life.

Implications: This paper aims to demonstrate the possibility of using art to improve international students’ or researchers’ self-study and well-being during times of crisis.
