Slam - Constructivism
Multiple techniques were employed to increase the trustworthiness of our study . First, we have increased the credibility of our results using data triangulation, specifically by gathering data during and immediately after the event, as well as in the several weeks following it . Collected data included: fieldnotes recorded during the event by the primary investigator; post-event, Qualtrics-based surveys completed by both storytellers and audience members; Twitter postings; post-it note reflections written during the story slam; and e-mail/text correspondence about the event between participants and research team members in the weeks after the story slam. Second, analyst triangulation was utilized to increase the rigor of the data analysis. Multiple members of the research team coded the collected data independently, then met to reach agreement on codes, recoded the data independently, then met again to agree upon themes in the coded data and direct quotes from the data representative of those themes. Third, to increase transferability  we used rich, thick description  in our write-up of the results. Finally, dependability and confirmability have been ensured through the use of an audit trail detailing the research methods used and decision points encountered during the study.
Slam - Constructivism
Constructivism, a modern art style of assemblage art or sculpture, conceived initially by Vladimir Tatlin (1885-1953), combined the dynamism of Futurism and the geometry of Cubism. In Constructivist ideology, structure - a three-dimensional concept - is seen as more important: presumably because of its design and functional implications. Constructivism flourished in the 1920s before being replaced by Socialist Realism. Soviet authorities later slammed "Konstruktivizm" for its bourgeois qualities.
El Lissitzky (1890-1941) Painter and illustrator and follower of Suprematist Kasimir Malevich (1878-1935) before become an adherent of constructivism. Known for his Prouns series of abstract pictures (1919-24). At the Bauhaus, he introduced Constructivist ideas to the architect Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969). 041b061a72
