Social media and learning/teaching styles – Experiences within transnational intra-Asian studies. This sub-study, conducted in Turkey, focus on how transnational students from Central Asia and China with scholarships from Turkish government discuss social mobility and visions for the future related to educational issues. All the students have attended courses in international relations at the Department of political science at Istanbul University. Six life stories have been collected. The paper specifically discusses the role social media played/plays in access to information on education abroad, and how social media is used in everyday life. Another topic discussed is how the students look upon learning/teaching styles in relation also to schooling in their "homelands". The results will be compared to the other sub-studies within the project, taking place in South/ and Southeast Asia as well as in United Arab Emirates. All researchers work with life stories linked to a broader context – a multi-sited interdisciplinary study in transnational contexts. The empirical material from the different sub-studies will be used contrastingly in a ”soft comparison”. This is expected to give mutually interpretative advantages. The material from the different sub-studies will also be used to generate new questions and discursive and social structures will be made visible through the comparative approach. Aspects of this “soft comparison” will also be discussed in the paper.
