Creating an IL definitional framework

Content/context analysis
ByLola-Peach Martins, Maria De Lourdes Lazzarin

This chapter is about creating an IL definitional framework through a content/context analysis of the core IL fields. The chapter provides a short discussion of the analysis and findings of key terms associated with IL, generated through CAQDAS. In the first part of the study (Content Analysis 1/Context Analysis 1) we report the findings based on exploration of the term “irresponsibility” using the 400+ synonyms list combined with a CAQDAS text search for IL terms identified within the articles uploaded to CAQDAS. Then we report on the second analysis (Content Analysis 2/Context Analysis 2), which involved word frequency testing within the core IL fields, hence generating Word Cloud Samples.
